Skin Cancer Prevention, Treatment and Removal of Skin Cancer

As Australians, we all enjoy making the most of a sunny day. But it is a sad fact that, no matter how diligent we are with sun protection, our fabulous climate and outdoor lifestyle mean that none of us is immune to the effects of the sun on our skin. In fact, statistics show that 2 out of 3 Australians will be diagnosed with skin cancer by the age of 70.

Surprisingly, not every skin cancer occurs on the parts of the body that are exposed to the sun. In fact, skin cancer can also be the result of other causes, including trauma, burns, ulcers, radiotherapy and immune deficiency.

Early detection of skin cancer is vital. It is important to check your skin regularly. Any new lumps, bumps or changes should be examined by an expert. Accurate diagnosis of skin cancer is crucial, as there are various ways it can be treated, depending on the type of cancer.

Our aims are to give you the very best treatment and to ensure that your skin is as healthy and flawless as it can be.
