Is skin cancer reversible?

Solbari blog: Is skin cancer reversible?

The good news is that existing skin cancers or melanomas are highly treatable if caught at an early stage. It is possible to reduce the likelihood of a recurrence or new skin cancer from emerging by adopting a sun smart lifestyle. Sadly, with advanced cases of skin cancer and melanoma, the mortality or death rate increases substantially.

Skin cancer is caused in around 90 per cent of cases by an accumulation of sun exposure, so it is never too late to adopt a sun safe lifestyle.

It is possible to continue living an active, outdoors lifestyle and not exacerbate an existing skin cancer or melanoma (or trigger a new one) if you take sensible sun protection measures, including:

  • Limiting outdoor activities during the hours of 11 am and 4 pm, particularly in the summer months when the UV is at its highest levels.
  • Wearing UPF 50+ sun protective clothing, a sun hat with a broad brim, and a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF above 30.

Dermatologists will tell you that UPF50+ sun protective clothing is the most effective way to protect yourself from sunburn, skin ageing, skin cancer and melanoma.

Solbari is a leading sun protective brand with customers in over 70 countries. Solbari offers a range of UV resistant clothing. For more information, please see www.solbari.com.au

In July 2020, I noticed a tiny lump on my ear lobe. In Jan 2021, a friend noticed the lump and suggested I see a specialist. I saw a skin cancer specialist, who removed it and sent it off for a biopsy. 5 days later, the doctor called and said, "you have a level 4 melanoma".
