Our skin screenings are completely painless, non-invasive and allow for the early identification, body to toe skin checks, diagnosis, treatment and management of all types of skin cancers.
Who's at risk?
Everyone is at risk of skin cancer, although some more than others. Skin cancer occurs when skin cells are damaged by over exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun, exposure to toxic substances or by having a condition that weakens the immune system.
Every year in Australia:
- Skin cancers account for around 80% of all newly diagnosed cancers
- Between 95% and 99% of skin cancers are caused by exposure to the sun
- GPs have over 1 million patient consultations per year for skin cancer
- The incidence of skin cancer is one of the highest in the world, two to three times the rates in Canada, the US and the UK
Annual skin checks are vital in ensuring early detection and treatment of skin cancer. Our skin screenings are completely painless and non-invasive. Click below to find out more.
