This problem is worse in the southern hemisphere so it is for these reasons that Australia has a high incidence of skin cancer.

SO, WHAT IS A ‘SKIN CHECK’ AND WHAT DOES IT INVOLVE? – A ‘Skin Check’ is essentially a full body skin examination. All the worrisome spots are examined first and then the remainder of the body is checked for any suspicious spots. Particular emphasis is placed on the face, back, hands and feet, because these regions carry a higher risk.
HOW LONG DOES THE PROCEDURE TAKE? – Generally between 30 and 45 minutes.
