Skin Checks

Skin checks will sometimes find melanoma!

Skin Cancer is one of our priority areas of interest here at West Toowoomba Medical Centre.

Did you know that Australians are four times more likely to develop a skin cancer than any other form of cancer?

Did you know that Melanoma is one of the most common cancers affecting youth in Australia?

Did you know that two in three Australians will be diagnosed with skin cancer by the time they are 70?

WE RECOMMEND all patients book in for a Skin check at least yearly.  During this special consultation we will do a head to toe examination of your skin.  We will ask you to remove your clothing and shoes but keep your underwear on.  Often we will take photos of suspicious skin lesions for you to look at and so we can keep a copy on your medical records.  We will discuss treatment options with you regarding any lesions that we are concerned about.

Please call 07 4633 1366 to make an appointment and mention that you are booking in for a skin check.
