Get your skin checked

It is important to get your skin checked regularly as most skin cancers can be cured if detected early. The aim of skin cancer screening is to detect skin cancers at the earliest possible stage to enable prompt and effective treatment. Unlike some skin cancer clinics, all skin cancer screenings at the Ballarat Skin Cancer Centre are performed by the Dermatologist themselves.

Skin cancer screenings involve taking a thorough history and examination of the patient. The use of a Dermatoscope during the examination process improves the early detection of skin cancer, and reduces the need to undertake the excision of benign skin lesions.

For further information on the types of Skin Cancers, please refer to the individual Skin Cancer sections found in the menu bar under Patient Information.
