Writing for pleasure to showcase the best Australia has on offer.
A Melanoma is a type of cancer that develops from the pigment-containing cells and twenty-five percent develop from moles, so it is very important to watch any moles you have on your body for changes in colour, size, itchiness or skin breakdown. Being the most dangerous of skin cancers, it can kill if not detected early. Australia and New Zealand have the highest rate of melanoma in the World.

The more awareness and education delivered to the public, the more this disease can be treated early with successful outcomes. Do not be complacent with it comes to your skin.
