The Gibraltar Health Authority is holding its annual skin cancer screening day on Saturday (13 April), from 9am to 1pm at the Primary Care Centre. Anyone interested in having moles or growths on their skin checked is asked to use the entrance via the front of the ICC building.

Users should also remember that these checks are only to detect possible skin cancer and not for advice on other skin problems such as psoriasis or eczema.

The GHA says these screening days are important as they serve as a reminder of the importance of sun protection and they enable diagnoses to be made early, thereby saving people's lives.
