An online test can predict your skin cancer risk
Calculating your likelihood of developing melanoma just became a bit easier thanks to scientists at the Queensland Institute of Medical Research. After analysing data from almost 42,000 people, they’ve created an online tool that can predict your risk by assessing factors such as age, gender, how your skin tans and your sunscreen use. Experts predict 14,320 new cases will be diagnosed in 2018, so early detection is vital. Do the test at qimrberghofer.edu.au, then ask your GP about screenings.
