Talk about your health with a doctor who ‘gets’ you. Like you, many of our doctors are dads, husbands, partners and workmates. We know it can be tough to ask for support and to stay motivated to do things differently.

It is estimated that 8,899 Australian men will be diagnosed with skin cancer in 2019.
