Like most Aussies, I spent a lot of my time outside when I was young. We weren't as smart about sun protection then and every year I ended up with some terrible sunburns. That's all coming back to bite me now as I'm not that old but am already getting skin cancers burnt off regularly. I head in for a full body scan every 6 months at the skin cancer clinic and they let the doctors know which to burn off. It's not that much fun, but it's very important which is why I'm sharing information about skin cancer check-ups on this blog.
