And yet, experts warn, the rate of early detection could be much higher.

‘Many people are afraid of checking,’ Dr David Fisher, director of the Melanoma Program at Massachusetts General Hospital, told Daily Mail Online.

‘It’s one of those fear and denial-type things. People would rather not know than find out something scary or devastating.

‘But the thing is, six out of seven melanoma cases are cured just by catching it early and removing it. In other words, early detection could be life-saving.’

He added: ‘That statistic should help motivate people to be really proactive, to realize that there’s a benefit to this.

‘Not every cancer has that type of opportunity to catch it so early. This type of cancer does.’
