Skin Cancer Checks
We have doctors with a special interest in skin cancer checks, and additional training in the detection and removal of skin cancers.
Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world. About two in three Australians will be diagnosed with some form of skin cancer before the age of 70.
There are three main types of skin cancer:
Basal Cell Carcinoma and Squamous Cell Carcinoma are the most common types of skin cancer and are sometimes call non-melanoma skin cancer. Melanoma usually begins as a new small spot, mole or freckle that changes colour, shape or thickness over months.
Skin cancer occurs when skin cells are damaged, for example, by overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun.
A skin cancer check assesses your skin cancer risk and indicates any current skin problems of concern.
The skin cancer check includes taking your medical history, including previous sun UV exposure, as well as undertaking a detailed examination of your skin. If any moles or lesions have developed or changed in size or nature recently, our doctors will assess and recommend the necessary treatment.
We recommend you see your GP for a skin cancer check at least annually. As well as scheduling your annual assessment, you should see your GP should you notice any of the following signs:
If you notice any of the above, it is advised to book an appointment immediately with your GP for an examination. Your doctor will provide you with a thorough skin check, and scan for symptoms of larger issues.
There is no single method to treat all skin cancers and precancerous lesions. Choice of method is dictated by the size of the lesion, its location, its type (often confirmed by biopsy), and whether it is a primary or recurrent lesion.
Also considered is the patient’s age, health, occupation and preference for treatment method.
According to the Cancer Council, for best protection, they recommend a combination of sun protection measures:
In summary, to book a skin cancer check with a GP, please contact us.
Body Mapping is a new state of the art technology is extremely effective for mapping any moles you have, and identifying any areas of concern. Body Mapping captures the entire skin surface long-term.
Total body photography is the best way to track potential changes in moles and lesions for early detection of possible skin cancer.

If you are aged between 45-49 year old, you can book a free health check with us.
Entering middle age presents a whole new host of health challenges for many people. The Australian Department of Health categorises 45-49 year olds as the demographic most at risk of developing a chronic illness.
As this is an Australian government health care initiative, your consultation will be fully funded by Medicare. As such, you will not be charged for the assessment.
Between the ages of 45 and 49 years old is when, statistically, you have a good chance of showing signs of the development of chronic disease. Unfortunately chronic diseases can have a significant impact on your health and well-being later in life. Your GP may make recommendations to help you avoid health problems later in life.
If you haven’t been particularly conscious of your health in the past, then this health check is critical. For people who display risk factors for developing chronic disease, a 45-49 year old health check is even more important. Some risk factors that may lead to the development of chronic illness include:
If you believe that you fulfil any of the above risk factors, speak to your GP. You can make changes to prevent them exacerbating any existing illnesses or causing the development of chronic diseases in future.
Our health assessments are a comprehensive and full health check of your general overall physical and mental health.
A mental health assessment and physical examination and health assessment is vital to identifying and preventing the onset of any chronic illness. These checks include a thorough examination of your diet, exercise, family history, and the review of any medication you may be taking. It may also include immunisations, type 2 diabetes risk evaluation tests and/or screening tests considered necessary for your age and/or health history.
Other components of the health assessment may include:
This assessment is designed to detect, delay or prevent the current state or development of chronic health conditions.
Health assessments run for approximately one hour, including 30 minutes with a practice nurse followed by 30 minutes with your GP.
You will be eligible for a Medicare rebate for your 45-49 year old health check. You may also be eligible for a Medicare rebate for further healthcare requirements, particularly if the outcome of your health assessment is further management of chronic diseases.
We are committed to the ongoing care of your health and well-being. Therefore, we highly recommended this free health assessment to all our eligible patients. We encourage you to make an appointment with us at your earliest convenience.
