Heatwave triggers urgent skin cancer alert for UK men from cancer research

An urgent health warning has been issued to every man in the UK Heatwave in UK.

This means parts of the country will be hotter than some of the world’s top beach destinations, including the Maldives and Marbella in Spain.

The warning comes after research found the risk of melanoma skin cancer 219% higher in males.

Six men a day die from the deadly disease (1,400 a year), with health chiefs warning men are 69% more likely to die from the disease.

Men have been urged to take sunscreen seriously as rates have risen sharply since the 1970s.

Skin cancer warning to British men amid heatwave

Cancer Research chief executive Michelle Mitchell said: “These figures, showing that six people die from melanoma every day in the UK, highlight the importance of sun protection.

“We all need to take steps to protect ourselves from the sun’s harmful UV rays. If you only get a sunburn every two years, your risk of skin cancer can triple.”

She added: “This weekend, remember to spend some time in the shade, cover up with clothing and regularly apply sunscreen with at least SPF 15 and 4 or 5 stars.

“And if you notice any unusual changes in a patch of skin or nails, don’t hesitate to tell your doctor.

“Most of the time it’s not cancer, but when it is, early diagnosis can make all the difference.”
