Newcastle Skin Check research

Constantly striving for breakthrough treatments

At Newcastle Skin Check, we are committed to skin cancer research, constantly striving for new breakthrough treatments and cures. We are currently involved in a multi-centre study with Professor Scott Menzies & Associates, The Sydney Melanoma Diagnostic Centre, and The Melanoma Institute of Australia.

The study looks at high risk Melanoma patients and the use of total body photography and digital dermoscopic monitoring. The ‘high risk clinic’ will be run by Drs Azzi and Lilleyman every Wednesday afternoon.
