Skin Care and Cancer Checks
2 out of 3 Australians will develop skin cancer. Prevention and early detection are critical.
People who have a higher risk of developing skin cancer include those who:
- Previously had a skin cancer and/or have a family history of skin cancer
- Have a large number of moles on their skin
- Have a skin type that is sensitive to ultraviolet (UV) radiation and burns easily
- Have a history of severe/blistering sunburns
- Spend lots of time outdoors, unprotected, during their lifetime
- Actively tan or use solariums, sunlamps and sunbeds
- Work outdoors
Please book a 30 minute appointment with your doctor for your skin check.
The doctors ask that you not wear make up, nail polish, skin cream, or fake tan to your skin check appointment.
