Why Have a Skin Cancer Check ?
You Could Be At Risk of SkiN Cancer
It only takes one irregular mole to become a Melanoma.
Two in three Australians will be diagnosed with Skin Cancer by the time they are 70.
Melanoma is the third most common cancer in Australia in both women and men.
A Skin Check is Easy
The earlier a skin cancer is detected and treated the better your chance of avoiding surgery and potential disfigurement.
At the Bondi Junction Skin Cancer Clinic, we perform a full body skin check, and our Doctor performs a full review and assessment. This involves mapping every mole or mark on your body.
Get Familiar With Your Skin & Body
You should familiarise yourself with your skin, and be aware of any changes that might suggest skin cancer.
Look for anything changing uniquely on your skin anywhere for more than 2-3 weeks.
Crusty sores, things that don't heal, new spots, freckles, or moles, or other things (lesions) that change in colour or thickness.
If you notice any of these changes, arrange an appointment with our Doctors for a skin check immediately.
The good news is that skin cancer is one of the most preventable forms of cancer in Australia. Having regular skin checks will help you be aware of any skin changes.
