Skin Cancer Clinic
Skin cancer is the highest diagnosed type of cancer in Australia each year. The best way to protect you and your family is to do regular skin checks. That way, early detection is ensured and development of skin cancer can be prevented. While we offer detection of skin cancer, we also provide treatment in the form of minor procedures. Here’s what else you can do to protect your skin:
- Slip, Slop, Slap
- Avoid long sun exposure
- Always wear sun protection, particularly when it’s cloudy (UV index is usually much higher with cloud cover)
- Check in with your doctor for regular skin checks
