Queensland is known as the Sunshine State, and we thoroughly enjoy our weather most of the year. However, the constant sun exposure puts us at the highest rates of skin cancers in the world.
If you are concerned at any stage about any changes to your skin e.g... moles, sun spots, ulcers we encourage you to make an appointment as soon as possible.
In addition to this, it is a good idea to get regular skin checks. The frequency of these skin checks depends on your age, your sun exposure and predisposing factors, but generally as you get older more regular skin checks are required (usually annual skin checks are adequate)
Early detection is vital, and the majority of skin cancers if detected early can be successfully treated and cured.
Our doctors have access to the assistance of many Dermatologists and Plastic Surgeons if needed for our patients’ convenience.
Our Skin Cancer Clinic is lead by Dr. Ala Melati who obtained his Masters in Skin Cancer Medicine in 2012. Dr. Melati spends his time researching and collaborating with the University of Queensland as a senior lecturer and is also registered with the Skin Cancer College Australasia.
