skin cancer risk warning during this weekends hot spell

Written by on 11 June 2021

 A skin cancer specialist at the Royal Stoke hospital is urging people to take extra care with this weekend set to be one of the hottest of the year so far.

Wayne Jaffe, who’s also a medical advisor for Melanoma UK, says skin cancer is the biggest cause of cancer in this country and spending too long in the sun without adequate protection will put you at risk.

Around 16,000 new cases of Melanoma skin cancer are diagnosed every year in the UK.
