Skin cancer has reached epidemic proportions in Australia.
Currently one in two Australians will develop the disease at some stage during their lives. There are three reasons why our levels of skin cancers are so high; our mainly fair skinned population; Australia's harsh climate and our love for the great outdoors.
Sunburn is not the only cause of skin cancer.
Tanning or just too much sun, year after year, can also lead to people developing the disease.
