Skin Cancer
With our enviable climate and fantastic beaches, it’s little wonder that Australians love the great outdoors. However, our love of the outdoors is a double-edged sword as we have the highest rate of skin cancer in the world.
Skin Screening
Skin Screening is becoming more hi-tech. The latest technology can now identify and assist in the diagnosis of suspicious lesions – meaning earlier diagnosis and greater reassurance to those at risk
Dermatologist
Your skin is your body's outer protective layer. Like any other part of the body, it may become damaged through disease, sun exposure and trauma. Find out which professional is best qualified to consult when your skin needs 'help'.
Sun Protection
Sun protection is not just about slopping on sun cream. It's knowing when the high risk times are, being able to choose appropriate clothes and sunglassesses, as well as teaching your children to be SunSmart.
MOHS SURGERY
2 out of 3 Australians will develop skin cancer during their lifetimes. Mohs Surgery standout as having the highest cure rate for skin cancer.

News & Articles

Rare Skin Tumors
In the World Health Organisation’s Classification of Skin tumors in 2006, literally hundreds of benign and malignant tumors are catalogued. Fortunately, most of the malignant tumors, (apart from BCC, SCC, and Melanoma) are rare.
Moles
The critical events which lead to the development of naevi remain a mystery. Exposure to ultraviolet radiation and genetic factors both play a role. There appears to be a variable relationship between skin, eye and hair colour, the tendency to sunburn and freckle, and the development of naevi.
Dysplastic Naevi (DNS)
Dysplastic nevi are moles which are characteristically large, flat (totally or partially) with irregular shape, indistinct borers and variable pigmentation. These can be extremely difficult visually to differentiate from melanoma.
10 Golden Rules
1. Wear a hat, protective clothing and sunglasses 2. Use a broad spectrum and SPF 15 or 30+ sunscreen 3. Stay out of the sun during its peak period 11am-3pm 4. Don’t completely avoid the sun, as it is essential to good health
