Skin cancer occurs when skin cells are damaged, for example, by overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun.
Every year, in Australia*:
There are three main types of skin cancer:
1 – Melanoma
2 – Basal Cell Carcinoma
3 – Squamous Cell Carcinoma
*Both Basal Cell Carcinoma and Squamous Cell Carcinoma are known as non-melanoma skin cancer.
Our Skin Cancer Clinics run by our highly trained and experienced Doctors and accompanying nurses can also provide surgical and medical treatment of skin cancers for the removal of skin lesions and provision for other surgical operations.
Our advanced skin cancer technology located in Blacktown can provide full body general skin examinations, computerised mole mapping and mole surveillance to detect signs of skin cancer.
