OUR EXPERTS CAN DIAGNOSE & TREAT SKIN CANCER EARLY

Skin cancer affects young and old. It does not discriminate. Here in Australia, we have one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world.

 

  • More than 60% of Australians will receive a diagnosis of skin cancer before the age of 70.
  • More than 2000 Australians are dying of skin cancer each year.
  • More than 2,500 skin cancer treatments occur in Australia every day..

A skin cancer check could save your life. If a patient’s cancer is detected early during a routine scan, their prognosis is promising, with their condition likely to be more treatable than a person whose skin cancer scan may have been done too late.

One of the most advanced methods of early skin cancer diagnosis is to get a detailed, full body skin check and full body mole mapping. For comprehensive skin check and mole mapping in Melbourne as well as other services, make an appointment at Mole Check Clinic.

How Does Skin Cancer Check Work?

There are a number of techniques used in the process of skin cancer diagnosis. The first involves a specialised skin cancer doctor putting you through a full body skin check, whereby they examine all spots that they believe to be suspicious with a uniquely designed, non-invasive viewing instrument called dermatoscope. This instrument uses an intense light and enlarges the image of the spot for more detailed analysis.

The second method commonly used in a skin cancer check session is full body photography (mole mapping). This technique uses specially designed cameras that take images of every part of the person’s skin. These images are held in a secure database. When the patient returns for another session the doctor will compare the sets of images, looking specifically for changes in various parameters of any potentially suspicious moles.
