Get A Skin Cancer Check-Up In Our Melbourne Clinic

Skin cancer is a common concern in Australia, and everyone should get an annual screening to investigate any suspicious moles and marks on their body. Camberwell Medical Group offers a complete skin cancer check-up at our Melbourne clinic to give you peace of mind that your skin is healthy and safe. We can also treat and remove cancerous tissue and provide preventative care to protect your skin from the sun.


When To Visit Us for a Skin Cancer Spot Check

Everyone can benefit from annual skin cancer checks, especially if you spend a lot of time outdoors in the sun. There are a few high-risk factors for skin cancer to consider - visit us for a melanoma skin check at our Melbourne clinic if you:

  • Have a history of cancer in your family

  • Are fair-skinned and sunburn easily

  • Are blond or red-haired (you can burn on your scalp too)

  • Have a large number of moles on your body

  • Have a history of sunburns

  • Have a history of sun tanning or using a solarium

What Happens During a Skin Cancer Check-Up at Our Melbourne Clinic?

Most forms of skin cancer are highly treatable when caught early, and if we identify any cancerous skin tissue during your check-up, we can remove it for you in the clinic. The three types of skin cancer we can treat are:

  • SCC (squamous cell carcinoma) - often appear as scaly red patches of thick, rough skin with a central depression in areas frequently exposed to the sun, such as your head and neck.

  • BCC (basal cell carcinoma) - often appears as waxy, slightly transparent bumps on the skin in areas frequently exposed to the sun, such as your head and neck.

  • Melanoma - a cancerous mole that often has an irregular border or colour and changes shape or size over time.

If we identify a melanoma, BCC, or SCC during your skin exam, our qualified medical practitioners can remove them and reconstruct the area using the following methods:

  • Excision - the doctor will first clean and numb the area before using a surgical scalpel to remove the mole from the rest of your skin. We may shave the mole off and send it for further lab testing.

  • Skin graft - we remove healthy skin from another part of your body and use it to cover the area where we removed a mole or non-melanoma skin cancer. This procedure can improve the appearance of your skin after a large excision of healthy skin from the surrounding area.Flap surgery - this procedure is ideal for reducing scarring during the healing process after an excision. It involves covering the site of your mole removal with a flap
