A caring approach from a professional team
With such a huge prevalence of skin cancer in Australia, most GPs are trained in diagnosing skin cancer. The process is quite simple. A device known as a Dermoscope is used to identify abnormalities that may be invisible to the naked eye. A biopsy may be taken of a suspicious lesion that can be sent away for testing. It is very critical to detect and treat skin cancer at the early stage.
We have a skin cancer clinic at our medical centre, that is a part of our goal to provide all primary care under one roof which is not only convenient for you but also provides easy communication between providers who are involved in your care. Following up for results and wound care after any procedure if needed becomes much easier.
