March is the time to look in the mirror......
all know that the New Zealand sun is very fierce and can cause melanoma
(which kills more New Zealanders than car accidents). March is at
the end of summer and so is an ideal time to check your skin for
any changes in freckles, spots or other blemishes. And if in doubt,
go to the doctor. If caught early, this cancer can be easily removed.
Fishermen (and it
is much more prevalent in men) are very much at risk of this form
of cancer due to the time spent in the sun. So do read this article,
to the Mirror" and do yourself a favour. Spend a few minutes
to check that all is well.
