Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world. Most skin cancers, including melanoma, occur after damage to skin cells from unprotected exposure to ultraviolet, or UV, radiation from the sun.

This episode of Settlement Guide looks at the risk factors of skin cancer, including for people with darker skin tones and ways to stay sun-safe in Australia.

Kulasegaram Sanchayan reports in Tamil with a feature written by Chiara Pazzano.
