2 in every 3 Australians will have a skin cancer at some point in their life. It is important that patients be effectively assessed for skin cancer risk and be regularly checked for new skin cancers.
In high risk patients (with a history of previous skin cancer, immune suppression or a strong family history of melanoma), this regular assessment needs to be undertaken up to 4 times a year.
Skin cancer checks
Integrated specialist healthcare offers a skin cancer risk assessment and subsequent screening based on your skin examination and background history. Part of this is also educating you on what to look for so that you become aware of your own skin and can return at any time should you be concerned about a new or changing skin lesion.
The power of integration
The unique integrated specialist healthcare concepts bring together dermatology and plastic surgery to provide immediate access to specialist services should you require them.
