Skin Cancer Checks
Skin cancer occurs when skin cells are damaged, for example, by overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun.
In Australia 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.
A skin cancer checkup assesses your skin cancer risk and indicates any current skin problems of concern.
The checkup includes taking your medical history, including previous sun UV exposure, as well as undertaking a detailed examination of your skin.
