Get your skin checked for summer

As we come into the heat of summer, remember to stay hydrated and be sun smart. 

On a hot summer day, sunburn can start to occur in just under 15 minutes. Overexposure to UV light can increase risk of skin cancer. It is important to be familiar and check your own skin if you notice any changes. Look out for:
- Changes to colour, size, shape or thickness of moles and freckles over period of weeks or months
- Small lumps
- Any wounds that are not healing
Skin-checks are available at the ANU Medical Centre.
