The Mole Check Process
Mole Skin Checks Australia doctors specialise in the diagnosis and management of skin cancers. Your doctor will consult, examine and assess your concerns or risk and address any specific issues you may have.
In the event your Doctor identifies any spots/moles of being suspicious of skin cancer, they will discuss potential treatment options with you, which could involve immediate mole removal or biopsy.
The specimen/s will be sent to pathology for confirmatory tests, results of which will be discussed with you at a subsequent appointment.
You will also be provided with information regarding follow up and skin cancer care and surveillance as appropriate.
BENEFITS OF MOLE SKIN CHECKS AUSTRALIA
Australia has one of the highest rates of Skin Cancers in the world and around two in three Australians will be diagnosed with skin cancer by the time they are 70. Every year, approximately 80% of all newly diagnosed cancers are due to Skin Cancers*.
Skin cancers can be caused by sun exposure/sunburn, tanning or genetics. Fairer skin and those who burn easily are more prone to getting skin cancers.
Skin cancers can turn malignant and spread to the rest of the body, and this is often when treatment becomes difficult and the prognosis is often poor.
Early detection is the best way to prevent this so that spots get removed before they potentially become malignant. Most Skin Cancers are also successfully treated if detected early. This is done via a Skin Check.
