Recent figures have stated that since 1970s there has been a triple increase in the number of young Scots succumbing to the deadliest form of skin cancer.
In UK alone, according to Cancer Research UK, every day about two people who are less than 35 years of age were found to have malignant melanoma every day.
It has been seen that Scotland takes a lead when it comes to cancer cases as compared to the UK.
Every week over two people were seen to have skin cancer who are from 15-34 year old in Scotland.
There was an increase of 2.2 cases per 100,000 in Scotland in the past 30 years.
This means that every year in Scotland people of all ages who are found to have malignant melanoma are about 1,090 people.
Kellie Boyle who is a primary school assistant in 2007 was diagnosed with the cancer.
There has been a small red blemish on her neck due to which the 26-year-old from Arbroath is suffering now.
She said, “I really had no worries about it at all. It was more like a little skin tag and the dermatologist didn't think it was anything to worry about. I had it removed and, as far as I was concerned that was the end of that.”
