Skin cancer is the most common cancer in Australia. Most skin cancers are found on the face, head, back and upper limbs, where the sun normally hits the most. However, skin cancer can appear on any part of the body. Skin cancer is caused by ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun.
The good news is that if skin cancer is caught early, it can be treated.
The doctors regularly perform full skin checks and can diagnose and treat skin cancers. The clinic is equipped with dermatoscopes to accurately diagnose skin conditions.
The doctors are qualified to surgically excise a full range of skin cancers in the procedure room.
A skin check takes about 20-25 minutes and can be performed in a long appointment. This includes time for the examination and for your doctor to ask you questions about your general health. Make sure you tell your doctor about any spots or moles you have which are new, sore, changing, or unusual.
Some doctors are accepting new patients. Please ask for details.
