ABOUT MOLE CHECK AUSTRALIA
INFORMATION ABOUT THE SKIN CHECK PROCESS
Upon arrival, we will ask you to complete a simple Skin Check questionnaire.
During the appointment, your Doctor will review the completed questionnaire with you to assess your risk and address any specific concerns that you may have.
A full body skin check is then performed by your Doctor using a Dermatoscope, a specialised medical tool.
In the event your Doctor identifies any spots/moles of being suspicious of skin cancer, they will discuss potential treatment options with you, which could involve immediate mole removal or biopsy.
These will be sent to the clinical laboratory for confirmatory tests. The results of the tests will be discussed with you at the next appointment including any subsequent management. We will also provide you with information regarding any follow up and skin cancer care/surveillance, as appropriate.
WHY DO IT?
Australia has one of the highest rates of Skin Cancers in the world and around two in three Australians will be diagnosed with skin cancer by the time they are 70. Every year, approximately 80% of all newly diagnosed cancers are due to Skin Cancers*.
Skin cancers can be caused by sun exposure/sunburn, tanning or genetics. Fairer skin and those who burn easily are more prone to getting skin cancers.
Skin cancers can turn malignant and spread to the rest of the body, and this is often when treatment becomes difficult and the prognosis is often poor.
Early detection is the best way to prevent this so that spots get removed before they potentially become malignant. Most Skin Cancers are also successfully treated if detected early. This is done via a Skin Check.
Our Doctors at Mole Check Australia have a special interest in Skin Cancer. Our team of doctors includes Dr Bryan Lim, Dr Sarah Concepcion, Dr Mark Chan, and Dr Claire Sheeren.
