Skin cancer uncovered in sun-exposed cricketers – UV skin analysis

Posted Nov 19 2009 10:03pm

Friday 15th May 2009

Cricketers across the country will be given a skin analysis to help uncover potential melanomas in the skin from increased sun exposure.

As we come to the end of Sun Awareness Week, we hope that people who spend a lot of time in the sun, whether that is for leisure or work, are more aware of the serious threats it can pose to our skin and how to prevent skin cancer form developing.

Cricketers are the most exposed to UV rays as they spend a lot of time in Australia and New Zealand. Of course they take precautions and try to protect their skin, but when you spend more than 8 hours in the sun a day, it’s difficult to dodge the danger!

Top tips for preventing skin cancer:

  1. Avoid the sun between 11am and 3pm
  2. Wear at least factor 20 sunscreen
  3. Wear a hat to protect the skin on the head and a visor, peak or sun hat will also help shade the face
  4. Have a UV image skin analysis to identify any potential threats, so you can rectify any damage early and then avoid further damage in the future

If you’re worried about skin cancer or have spotted any suspicious looking blemishes or patches on the skin, leave us a comment here and we will give you a free consultation and skin analysis in either Leeds, Manchester or Chester.
