Skin Cancer Checks

Qualified doctors at The Skin Lab can provide thorough skin checks for patients.

Skin Cancer Checks

Queensland has the highest rate of skin cancer in the world. More than 430,000 Australians are treated a year for skin cancers. Of these, over 10,500 new cases of melanoma are diagnosed. Each year there are around 1,600 deaths from melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer.*

Our doctors have been trained to easily identify both early and advanced skin cancer. Sometimes a biospsy is necessary to confirm the diagnosis. We can provide a number of treatment alternatives for a variety of skin cancers including non-surgical alternatives. Lesions may be suitable to be treated with PDT

If surgical excision is required, our doctors have been trained to give an excellent cosmetic outcome. This can be done onsite at The Skin Lab or through a private Day Surgery.

Our doctors work closely with specialist dermatologists at Terrace Dermatology, and can provide a direct referral if required.
