Skin Cancer Contributing Factors

Factors Contributing to Skin Cancer: Protecting Your Skin with Cosmetic Elegance Clinic

Cosmetic Elegance Clinic understands the importance of safeguarding your skin from the harmful effects of the sun. As Australians, we face the highest incidence of skin cancer worldwide, especially in the northern regions where solar UV radiation persists throughout the year. Despite this, many individuals remain complacent or negligent when it comes to protecting their skin from the sun’s harmful rays.


It’s crucial to recognise that prolonged exposure to UV radiation can impact anyone, regardless of their skin type. Even those with olive skin are at risk of developing skin cancer. Failing to detect it at an early stage may result in its spread to other areas of the body.


Numerous factors contribute to an increased risk of developing skin cancer. These factors include:


  1. Sun exposure during childhood, particularly without the use of sunscreen.
  2. Engagement in outdoor activities, including careers that involve spending time outdoors, sunbathing, outdoor sports, and leisure pursuits.
  3. Outdoor activities between 10 am and 2 pm, as solar UV radiation is more intense during this period.
  4. Fair complexion, blue or green eyes, freckles, and skin that tans poorly and burns easily.
  5. Previous instances of skin cancer or keratosis.
  6. Family history of skin cancer.
  7. Proximity to the equator – Queensland, in particular, experiences a higher rate of diagnosed skin cancers compared to southern states.
