Skin Checks

Every year, in Australia:

  • skin cancers account for around 80% of all newly diagnosed cancers
  • between 95 and 99% of skin cancers are caused by over-exposure to UV radiation from the sun
  • GPs have over 1 million patient consultations per year for skin cancer
  • the incidence of skin cancer is one of the highest in the world, two to three times the rates in Canada, the US and the UK.

Talk to your doctor about your level of risk and for advice on early detection

Skin Cancer Can Affect Anyone, so book your appointment today.

Our doctors perform skin cancer checks using dermatoscopy technology which allows superior detection of skin cancers and reduces unnecessary operations.

 

Dermatoscopy magnifies a skin lesion and uses specialised light to look through your skin to see the mole structure. This makes detecting melanomas easier and means fewer unnecessary biopsies and scar-forming excisions

.

Please inform the receptionist that you are specifically booking in for a skin check because it requires a double appointment.


Please do not wear make up or stockings.

 

After the doctor has examined your skin  he or she will discuss with you the most appropriate management plan.

 

Excisions, skin biopsies and procedures are performed at the surgery at a later date and usually requires a 1 hour appointment.
