Skin Check

Melanoma is the third most common cancer in Australians excluding keratinocyte cancers as data on incidence is not routinely collected. Every year, in Australia:
  • skin cancers account for around 80% of all newly diagnosed cancers
  • the majority of skin cancers are caused by exposure to the sun
  • 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.
The sooner a skin cancer is identified and treated, the better your chance of avoiding surgery or, in the case of a serious melanoma or other skin cancer, potential disfigurement or even death. It is also a good idea to talk to a Doctor at one of our dedicated skin cancer clinics about your level of risk and for advice on early detection. It’s wise to become familiar with the look of your skin, particularly spots and  moles , so you pick up any changes that might suggest a skin cancer. Look for:
  • any crusty, non-healing sores
  • small lumps that are red, pale or pearly in colour
  • new spots, freckles or any moles changing in colour, thickness or shape over a period of weeks to months.

Your Local Skin Check Clinic

SunDoctors Skin Cancer Clinics
SunDoctors Skin Cancer Clinics is an expert organisation, dedicated to the successful treatment of skin cancer in Australians. Our processes are guided by our highly competent doctors who have trained to specialise in the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and management of skin cancer and melanoma.

Due to the specialised nature of our clinics, we are able to perform the examination, diagnosis, and treatment all in one location, and all without the need for a referral.

Skin Check Services

Our skin checks are generally completed in a fifteen-minute session and are a simple, non-invasive process.

First, a doctor will examine your skin under a magnifying lamp and/or a hand held skin microscope called a Dermatoscope, recording any spots of interest.

If the doctor believes it is required, particularly if you are a high-risk patient, they may recommend you undergo total body photography in another session.

Treatment is usually simple, such as a biopsy or cryotherapy, and will be performed during the session. For any more complex surgical excision, you will be scheduled for a separate appointment.

We respect your privacy and most examinations will be performed with underwear on as parts of the body such as breasts, genitals, and buttocks are not examined regularly. However, if you believe that you may have a suspicious spot in one of these areas you may request to have it examined.

State-of-the-Art Clinics

Unlike general doctors practice, our facilities are built with the diagnosis and treatment of skin cancer in mind. This means that we have direct access to cutting edge technology, precision equipment and a wealth of resources that other practices might not have readily available, making our service more comprehensive and efficient than most other places in the country.

We have established clinics around Sydney, Central Coast, Melbourne, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast and Adelaide, and have integrated them with our own pathology labs, Southern Sun Pathology.

This means that not only can we examine and treat skin cancer on site but we have immediate access to pathologists solely dedicated to expertly diagnosing skin cancer, providing you with an efficient and holistic service.
