My hero is Linda, the Practice Manager of the New Town Skin Cancer Centre! I am a professional window cleaner and whilst window cleaning at the facility she suggested that I should book in to have my skin checked.
As a window cleaner I spend most of my work life outdoors which puts me in the high risk group of developing skin cancer.
The doctor found a melanoma on my arm which I was not aware of. This was picked up at an early stage thanks to the skin check, and was completely removed.
I am looking forward to a long and healthy life post melanoma diagnosis and will make sure I get my regular check-ups going forward.
