The Importance of Skin Checks in Australia
It is well known that the sun’s UV index is strong in Australia, which makes it very important for Australians to keep an eye on their skin. Sun exposure is the cause of around 99% of non-Melanoma skin cancers and 95% of Melanomas in Australia. Knowing that there is a skin cancer clinic near you is important for the quick treatment of skin cancer. With us, you can find your nearest skin cancer clinic and book a regular full-body skin check as a preventative method for the detection and treatment of any skin cancers. Book an appointment to see a skin cancer doctor today.

A skin check appointment is non-invasive and does not take very long to complete. A doctor is able to quickly and efficiently perform skin cancer check-ups for you, looking for Melanoma and any other worrying signs during your skin check. You can contact us to book in your skin cancer check today.
What to look for the detection of Skin Cancer
Skin cancers can develop in both sun-exposed or non-exposed areas of your skin. There are a few indicators you can watch for to alert you to the need to see a skin doctor, commonly known as the ABCDE’s of Melanoma. You can observe and perform your own mole check at home by monitoring any changes of moles and looking for these signs, but none of these replace the important need for a professional skin check.

Asymmetry. Most skin cancer is asymmetrical. If you draw a line through the middle of the lesion, the two halves are different.

Border. Skin cancer borders tend to be uneven and may have scalloped or notched edges, while common moles tend to have a more regular, smooth edge.

Colour. Multiple colours on a mole or lesion are a warning sign. General moles are usually a single shade of brown, but one that has developed into a skin cancer may have different shades of tan, brown or black.

Diameter or Dark. While it is ideal to detect skin cancer when it is small, it is a warning sign if a lesion is the size of a pencil eraser (about 6 mm) or larger. Some experts say it is also important to look for skin lesions, no matter what size, that are darker than others. In rare cases, there are amelanotic Melanomas which are colorless skin cancers.

Evolving. Any change in size, shape, color, or elevation of a mole spot on your skin, or any new symptom in it, such as bleeding, itching or crusting, may be a warning sign.
Types of Skin Cancer
Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC) – This is the most common but least dangerous form of skin cancer. It is slow-growing and usually found on the upper body, head, and neck. It may appear as a lump or dry, scaly area. A Basal Cell Carcinoma can be red, pale or pearly in colour. As it grows, it may ulcerate or appear like a sore that does not heal properly.

Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC) – This type of skin cancer is not as dangerous as Melanoma but may spread to other parts of the body if not treated. It grows over some months and appears on skin regularly exposed to the sun. A Squamous Cell Carcinoma can be a thickened, red, scaly spot that may bleed easily, crust or ulcerate.
