Older expatriate health insurance customers should get abnormal moles and skin changes checked by a medical professional as soon as possible.
This is the advice from Cancer Research UK, whose research has revealed that a failure to flag up such conditions has resulted in a significant rise in deaths from malignant melanoma among pensioners.
Expatriates living in hot climates should be careful of sunburn, as this is known to be a contributory factor to skin cancer.
This can lead to expensive medical treatment if individuals do not have expatriate health insurance cover.
Caroline Cerny, the charity's SunSmart campaign manager, commented: "While the risk of skin cancer increases with age, the fact that so many over 65s are being diagnosed when the disease is advanced means that older people need to keep a close eye on any changes to their skin or moles to avoid late diagnosis."
She noted that the earlier a cancer is diagnosed, the easier it will be to treat.
Moles that are itchy, bleeding, uneven in colour or have jagged edges should be checked out by a doctor.
