Skin cancer: our skin never forgets. An illness which can appear as melanoma or non-melanoma.

Skin cancer can be caused by unprotected exposure to the sun. Other times, it's down to your family history. Detecting it in its earliest stage can be key to controlling it. Enjoy the sun safely, and check your skin regularly. If you notice any changes, go to the dermatologist. Meet Charleen and Peter, two people with two different types of skin cancer.
