MEN are reminded to protect their skin against high temperatures.
The Portsmouth Clinical Commissioning Group said although slightly more women get malignant melanoma than men, it is men who are significantly more likely to die from the disease.
The trust advises people to stay out of the sun at the hottest time of the day, wear sunscreen and check skin regularly, including the shoulders and back.
Anyone who thinks something is not right should seek medical advice, and watch out for new moles or growths, or any existing moles which change in appearance.
People should also cover their skin during hot weather.
