Shadow Treasurer Jim Chalmers has revealed he was recently diagnosed with skin cancer.
“Last week I became one of around 16,000 Australians diagnosed with skin cancer this year. I’d mentioned to my doctor in passing that a darker than usual mole had appeared on my chest. Subsequent tests showed it was a melanoma.”
Jim Chalmers had minor surgery last Thursday to remove the melanoma on his chest.
Chalmers told sky news that “It’s a good prompt to remind people to get tested, especially if they see something that’s a bit unusual.”
