Episode #45: The importance of undergoing skin cancer checks
Research shows that skin cancer is a major cause of illness in Australia, with approximately two in three Australians diagnosed with the disease by the age of 70.
On this episode of The Wellness Daily Show, host Jerome Doraisamy is joined by the general manager of health services at TAL, Sally Phillips, to break down some statistics around Australians’ skin cancer check habits, when one should start getting their skin checked, and the four signs that people should be looking for when checking their own skin.
Sally also outlines why certain demographics might be more at risk to skin cancer, how workplaces can look after their staff in this regard, and the health and wellbeing programs currently underway at TAL.
