Skin cancer is by far the most common cancer in Australia, killing 5 people every day. Early detection is the key to treatment of skin cancer, giving us the best chance of targeting, treating and surviving skin cancer.
Dermoscopy is a new technique in which the mole structure is analysed by using highly magnified images of your moles.
Dermoscope (mole scanner) is an epiluminescence microscope that creates magnified dermoscopic images.
We use a state-of-the-art digital dermoscope (Fotofinder Medicam 1000) which can create high resolution images of moles up to 130 times magnification.
The skin check lasts between 15-30 minutes. The doctor will examine your body from head to toe. You will be required to undress to your underwear and a blanket can be provided for your comfort.
Genital areas are not routinely examined; however, skin cancers can develop in any area of the body and you should inform the doctor about any suspicious spots under your underwear. The doctor will only skin check these areas if you request them to do so.
Please avoid wearing nail polish, make-up or a fake tan when you come in for your skin examination, as these products can disguise spots and make them harder to find.
The procedure is completely painless. If the doctor finds a suspicious spot, they might take a photograph to be recorded and analysed, and they might take a biopsy which is a sample of the skin.
