SUN AWARE BRITAIN: SKIN CANCER SCREENING ENQUIRIES UP BY 198%

Enquiries for skin cancer screening have increased significantly in the past year, up 198%, as Brits become more aware of the importance of protecting their skin, according to our recent report.

Our research, conducted to mark Melanoma Awareness Month this May, found that 63% of Dermatologists surveyed have seen an increase in cases of melanoma in their practice, and 82% feel there is greater awareness of the signs of melanoma compared to five years ago .

Malignant melanoma is the fifth most common cancer in the UK, with approximately 13,500 cases diagnosed each year . Having moles increases the risk of melanoma so checking and monitoring any changes is an important part of skin cancer prevention . Enquiries for mole assessment increased by 63%, and the vast majority of those seeking clinics were women (80%) . Mole assessment in the UK costs £130, on average.

Mole removal enquiries also increased, up 40% in the past year, and this procedure has an average price tag of £107 in the UK. When compared with other countries, Germany had the highest increase in mole removal enquiries in the past year with 140%, then Hungary (125%) and New Zealand (122%) at number three compared to the UK which came in tenth on the list. Average prices vary drastically from country to country as the procedure is £150 cheaper in Poland than the United Arab Emirates.
