About skin cancer
Learn about the different types of skin cancer and how it is caused.
Skin cancer impacts 2 out of 3 Australians under the age of 70.^
The good news is that skin cancer is one of the most easily detectable and preventable types of cancer. This is why TAL strongly believes in the importance of prevention in maintaining overall good health. TAL SpotChecker is a national skin safety awareness program designed to help more Australians understand how to self-check their skin, as well as providing access to educational resources.
