Health and Wellness: Early detection of Skin cancer could save a life

In this week's Health and Wellness feature Pippa Hudson speaks to Dr Ian Webster, Dermatologist in Somerset West about the best ways to take care of skin and reduce chances of skin cancer.

Dr Ian Webster was the first Dermatologist to bring skin laser surgery to South Africa after being trained in laser surgery at Harvard Medical School in USA.

According to Dr Webster skin cancer kills. He says if it is detected early it can be prevented.

Many South Africans live an outdoor lifestyle in an extremely hot climate and everyone needs to take precautions and use protective sun block. Everyone is at risk, but paler skin is more so.

A lot of people are under the impression that skin cancer does not kill...it often kills young people.
