Skin cancer is the most common cancer in New Zealand. The three main types of skin cancers are: squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), basal cell carcinoma (BCC), and melanoma. They usually occur on sun exposed skin. Due to New Zealanders’ high exposure to sunshine and its increased UV radiation intensity, we have one of the highest rates of skin cancer. Early detection plays a cardinal role in the outcome of the disease.
