Skin cancer at alarming levels in UK

The rate of skin cancer is growing with the number of diagnoses five times higher than 40 years ago.

    The number of people developing skin cancer in the UK is now five times higher than it was in the 1970s. 

    More than 13,000 people are now diagnosed every year.

    The dramatic rise may be due to an increase in affordable foreign holidays and sunbed use.
