Skin Cancer Clinic

Anyone can develop skin cancer but many people in Australia are at an increased risk. In fact, Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world. 

  • Have you ever been sunburned?
  • Do you work or play sports outdoors?
  • Do you have fair skin or red hair?
  • Have you or someone in your family had skin cancer?
  • Are you worried about any spots on your skin?

If the answer is YES to any of the above, you may be at increased risk of developing skin cancer, and a skin check would be highly recommended.

Please call us and book a skin check with our skin cancer doctor – Dr Brad Wyer
(Diploma of Dermoscopy and Skin Cancer Surgery from the Australian College of Cutaneous Oncology)

  • Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world

Check Yourself

It's a good idea to become familiar with your skin through regular self-checks. You may need to ask a partner to check areas of skin you cannot easily see, such as your back. When checking your skin look out for the following:

  • Any spot, mole or freckle that has changed in shape, size or colour
  • A new spot that is different from other spots around it
  • Any small, dome-shaped lump that wasn’t there before
  • A sore that doesn’t heal or appears to ulcerate, or a sore that heals and then breaks down again

If you notice any of these signs phone us to make an appointment with our Skin Cancer doctor or your GP.
