Skin Cancer

Australia has the highest rate of skin cancer in the world. Around one in two Australians will develop skin cancer during their lifetime and around 1200 Australians die from skin cancer every year.

Most skin cancer is curable if found at an early stage. Early diagnosis and regular skin cancer check up promote healthy living. Excessive exposure to the sun is the leading cause of skin cancer and those with lighter skin complexions are greater at risk.
We offer full skin cancer checks, early medical and surgical treatments and referral for serious skin cancers.

At our skin cancer clinic , we use our clinical experience together with dermoscopy to do skin checks.  Dermoscopy is a simple method that enables detailed examination of the structure of  skin lesions or moles. It improves the diagnosis of  the vast majority of all skin cancer types without resorting to excessive biopsies– saving you time, unnecessary stress and costs..

If you notice any changes in moles in colour, thickness or size, crusting or non-healing sores or anything that is worried, please phone 07 5541 3111 to make an appointment

The Skin Check Process

The majority of patients will have a full check, which is where the skin is examined with underwear being left on. However, a more limited examination may be performed if a patient so desires e.g. upper half only, exposed areas only, or even just a single spot.Privacy is respected with examinations conducted with the patient in their underwear

Skin in the breast, genital, and buttock areas is not routinely examined, however skin cancers can occur in theses regions and any suspicious lesions should be examined by the doctor.

To facilitate a thorough examination it is preferred that make up (especially foundation) and nail polish is not worn to the consultation.

The skin is examined with a magnifying lamp first, and then dermoscopy is performed using a hand held dermatoscope   Any spots of interest are recorded and analysed or excised if need be.
