Skin Check Clinic

Australians have the highest incidence of melanoma in the world for both males and females. Two in three Australians will be diagnosed with skin cancer by the age of 70. In Victoria, more than 40,000 new cases of skin cancer are diagnosed annually.

In 2013, 460 Victorians died from skin cancers—more than the state road toll. Yet skin cancer is one of the most preventable cancers. And if found early can usually be successfully treated.

It is important to know your skin and what is normal for you so changes will be quickly noticed. Check all your skin and I you notice anything unusual, including any change in shape, color or size of a spot, or the development of a new spot, visit your doctor as soon as possible.
