Sunburnt Holiday-makers Boost Their Chances of Fatal Skin Cancer

skin cancer on her nose.

She said: “I was left with a hole the size of a 10 pence piece on the side of my nose. My doctor confirmed that the cancer was caused by too much sunbathing without proper protection.”

“When I was young I used to live for my holidays in the sun. But that’s all over now. It is so easy to protect your skin in the sun and if talking about my experience encourages people to take better care and avoid the risk of skin cancer it will have been worthwhile.”

Dr Rhodes advises that anyone with an unusual skin blemish or a mole that starts to change should get it checked out by the doctor.

"Signs to watch out for include a mole getting bigger, a mole with a ragged outline or one with a mixture of different shades of brown and black," she said. "If a mole gets inflamed or starts to bleed or itch, then get it checked out. But it’s also important to remember that any of these signs don't necessarily mean you have melanoma."

SunSmart campaign manager Rebecca Russell, said: "This year the campaign is focusing on holiday-makers because research has shown that people are most likely to burn in the sun when they are on holiday.

"We want to raise awareness of the danger of burning - especially when people take off for holidays in warmer countries where the temptation to spend too long on the beach can be great.

"But it is not just a problem for those who go abroad. People, especially those with fair skin, lots of moles or freckles or a family history of skin cancer, can be at risk of burning on hot summer days in the UK."
