Skin Cancer Checks

Skin cancer occurs when skin cells are damaged, for example, by overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun.

Every year, in Australia*:

  • skin cancers account for around 80% of all newly diagnosed cancers
  • between 95 and 99% of skin cancers are caused by exposure to the sun
  • GPs have over 1 million patient consultations per year for skin cancer
  • the incidence of skin cancer is one of the highest in the world, two to three times the rates in Canada, the US and the UK.

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.
