Mole Screening and skin cancer

Skin cancer has become increasingly common, since the ozone layer is becoming thinner, exposing the skin to more dangerous sun radiation. This has been a problem in Australia for a long time, but we are now also seeing an increasing amount of skin cancer even in our part of the world.

We offer a screening service both with regards to pigmented lesions (moles) and other types of skin tumours e.g. melanoma, basal cell carcinomas, and squamous cell carcinomas.

We have a SIAscope on site, which enables us to look at skin lesions in more detail and also document their appearence. This allows comparison if skin examinations and assessments are repeated.

We offer to remove suspicious skin lesions for histological (microscopic) investigation, at the same consultation, if necessary.
