Skin cancer is a serious condition, which affects around 1 million people in the world every year.

Here in our clinics, we offer a comprehensive approach to the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of skin cancer, starting from thorough skin cancer checks and extending to the collection of biopsies, application of topical chemotherapeutic agents with photodynamic therapy, simple as well as complex surgical excisions (including grafts and flap repairs) and cryotherapy. In the instance of visible scaring occurring post surgery, we offer scar revision, surgically and through different types of laser therapy.

Skin cancer is one the most common types of cancer in Australia, due to the presence of an intense level of ambient UV radiation. There are several types of skin cancers varying in presentation and severity. This includes squamous cell cancer, basal cell cancer and melanoma, which is one of the most life-threatening forms of skin cancer with a prevalence of 12500 cases per year.

More awareness has been created through the implementation of a nationwide skin cancer campaign, focusing on education the population about prevention, detection, management and skin cancer treatment.
