Skin Cancer Checks

Australia and New Zealand have the highest incidence of skin cancer in the world. One in three Australians can expect to develop some type of skin cancer in their lifetime. Early detection is the best way to improve the outcome for these cancers.

To assess your individual risk of melanoma see the risk calculator on the Victorian Melanoma Service website: http://victorianmelanomaservice.org/calculator/

Our GPs are experienced in performing skin examinations and assessing skin lesions and sun damage. They perform regular skin checks using a dermatoscope and monitor new or changing lesions. Advice our receptionist when you telephone for an appointment that you would like to book in for a Skin Cancer Check so they will allocate you a long consultation. Patients are advised not to wear makeup or face cream when attending a skin check.

If any lesions of concern are identified, a follow up appointment for biopsy or removal may be required.
