UK Incidence of Malignant Melanoma Now Exceeds 10,000 Cases

BBC News reports that Cancer Research UK is warning people against 'binge tanning', as rates of malignant melanoma, the most serious type of skin cancer, continue to increase faster than any other cancer.

As weather forecasters predict a hot summer in Britain, Sara Hiom, Cancer Research UK's director of health information, says, "Most melanoma skin cancers are caused by over exposure to UV rays given off by the sun and sunbeds." People are advised to avoid getting burned in the sun, to cover up with clothing, to wear sunglasses and sunhats, and to apply high factor sunscreen.

Reminder: there is more and more research finding that certain groups of people are short of vitamin D, the sunshine vitamin, so it would probably be best not to take avoidance of the sun too far. For example, see BBC News item

  1. Malignant Melanoma is a type of cancer which originates on skin. It can appear as a mole. It is even found in younger age bracket. It appears in the leg for females and for males, it is found on chest or back area. Those who have dark skin tone, are less likely to develop melanoma. Immediately diagnosing is very important, else it can worsen the situation. If anyone observes symptoms of it, should consult to doctor immediately.
