Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world, two to three times the rates in Canada, the US and the UK.
Anyone can be at risk of developing skin cancer, though the risk increases as you get older, if you have a personal or family history of skin cancer, or skin that burns easily.
It is important to check your skin regularly and check with your doctor if you notice any changes.
