Why Should We Have Sunspots Removed

The Sun is Queensland’s (and Australia’s) biggest asset but also it’s biggest liability. It is the skin cancer capital of the world and a substantial amount of skin cancer comes from sunspots. In fact more than 1 in 3 sunspots will turn cancerous according to medical studies. Beyond the cancer risk,as we age sunspots tend to get more prevalent and visible as well as spreading across the skin. We use technology that allows us to identify sunspots growing on the skin that the naked eye cannot see. This has taught us that when you can see sunspots on your skin invariably there are many more that you can’t see maturing.
