Did you know Australia has the highest skin cancer rate in the world?
Two in three Australians will be diagnosed with skin cancer at some point in their life.
Skin cancer is also the most common type of cancer in Australia.
Early detection of skin cancer saves lives.
The Skin Check Consultation
We offer our patients a fully comprehensive skin check. This involves a detailed history and the examination of your skin, from head to toe, using simple magnification, and dermoscopy.
Any spots of interest are recorded and analysed. On some occasions, we take clinical pictures. This forms part of your medical record for future comparison and may help our treatment decisions.
Your skin is examined with underwear being left on. However, a more targeted examination may be performed if a patient so desires e.g. back only, exposed areas only, or even just a single spot that you may be concerned.
To help us examine your skin thoroughly, we prefer you not to wear your make up (especially foundation) and nail polish.
Treatment may be carried out at the time of consultation e.g. cryotherapy (freezing with liquid Nitrogen) or perhaps a biopsy (taking a small piece of skin lesion, under local anaesthetic, to be looked at under the microscope). Patients who need to undergo surgical excisions will be given detailed explanation of the procedure and potential risks. Such surgical excisions are usually scheduled at a separate appointment.
There may be a small gap fee for full skin examinations. There may also be a small gap fee with our elective surgical excisions.
