In this weeks’ episode Niki and Catriona talk about skin cancer. Skin cancer is the most common cancer in Ireland with over 13,000 new cases diagnosed every year and the national cancer registry expects this number to double by 2040.
The dermatologists explain why skin cancer is so prevalent in Ireland, the main causes, who is more likely to get it and why. They also explain the difference between melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancers and highlight what you need to watch out for when it comes to staying vigilant about moles and other skin anomalies. They discuss the treatments and outcomes for people with skin cancer and the preventative action we all need to be taking to minimise our risk.
