Dr Veronique Del Marmol - Université Libre de Bruxelles, Brussels, Belgium

Dr Marmol meets with ecancertv at WCCS 2016 to discuss the outcomes of the Euro Melanoma campaign to raise public awareness of the causes, symptoms, and prevention of skin cancer.

Looking at data gathered from participating European countries regarding sun-bed use over the years, she describes an increased awareness and attendance of melanoma screening.

In comparison to attitudes towards other behaviours associated with increased risk of disease, specifically smoking, Dr Marmol highlights the ongoing need for wider engagement with preventative measures.

ecancer's filming at WCCS 2016 has been kindly supported by Amgen through the ECMS Foundation. ecancer is editorially independent and there is no influence over content.
