Melanoma sin cancer is the fifth most common cancer in the UK with around 16,000 new cases diagnosed each year.
The NHS states: “More than 1 in 4 skin cancer cases are diagnosed in people under 50, which is unusually early compared with most other types of cancer.
“Over recent years, skin cancer has become much more common in the UK. This is thought to be the result of increased exposure to intense sunlight while on holiday abroad.
“More than 2,300 people die every year in the UK from melanoma.”
