Is skin cancer reversible?

Is skin cancer reversible?

The good news is that existing skin cancers or melanomas are highly treatable if caught at an early stage. It is possible to reduce the likelihood of a recurrence or new skin cancer from emerging by adopting a sun smart lifestyle. Sadly, with advanced cases of skin cancer and melanoma, the mortality or death rate increases substantially.

Skin cancer is caused in around 90 per cent of cases by an accumulation of sun exposure, so it is never too late to adopt a sun safe lifestyle.

It is possible to continue living an active, outdoors lifestyle and not exacerbate an existing skin cancer or melanoma (or trigger a new one) if you take sensible sun protection measures, including:

  • Limiting outdoor activities during the hours of 11 am and 4 pm, particularly in the summer months when the UV is at its highest levels.
  • Wearing UPF 50+ sun protective clothing, a sun hat with a broad brim, and a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF above 30.

Dermatologists will tell you that UPF50+ sun protective clothing is the most effective way to protect yourself from sunburn, skin ageing, skin cancer and melanoma.

If most women retouch their make up every time, for me its retouching sunscreen and making sure that my body is protected against the sun. With Solbari clothing I have more time going outdoors because I don't have to put sunscreen on my body and worry about stains.

A visit to my doctor ended up with appointment to dermatologist who diagnosed basal cell carcinomas. I have been told after having had them once, they will probably return, in the same area, so I check myself regularly.
