Skin Cancer Checks & Treatment

All our Doctors are able to perform Skin Cancer Checks, however Dr Dikkumbura has completed additional training and performs the majority of our skin checks and surgical removal of skin lesions. 

  • We screen by using DERMATOSCOPE – which uses magnification and Illumination to detect early signs that may be missed with the naked eye
  • DIGITAL IMAGING – which stores images onto your medical record to allow ‘comparison’ of lesions being watched – from one visit to the next.
  • WHY IS IT IMPORTANT? Because it is imperative to diagnose Skin Cancer early, especially Melanomas – so they can be treated quickly and effectively.

Our Skin Cancer Services

Skin Scan

We conduct skin screening by using dermatoscope, which uses magnification and illumination to detect, identify and diagnose skin cancer such as Melanoma. This helps us detect early signs that may be missed with the naked eye.

Biopsy

If any suspicious lesions are detected in your skin screening, we may conduct a biopsy to ensure that the lesion is cancerous prior to any further action.

Treatment & Removal

Our skilled team can perform removal or non-surgical treatement of suspicious skin lesions when required.

Monitoring

We use digital imaging which stores images onto your medical record to allow ‘comparison’ of lesions being watched – from one visit to the next.

Did you know....

Approximately two in three Australians will be diagnosed with some form of skin cancer before the age of 70.

Why are regular skin scans important?

Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world. With over 95% of skin cancers caused by exposure to UV radiation – and unfortunately, most parts of Australia have high levels of UV radiation from the sun all year round. Unprotected skin exposed to high UV radiation can cause damage to skin that cannot be seen or felt – damage to skin cells can lead to skin cancer.

Regular skin checks allows for early detection and diagnosis of skin cancer which can highly increase the chances of successful treatment.
