Skin cancer is serious. That’s why our doctors are highly trained in skin cancer checks and skin cancer removal. We don’t take chances when it comes to cancer.
Skin cancer occurs when skin cells are damaged by overexposure to the ultraviolet (UV) the radiation of the sun.
There are three main types of skin cancer:
- basal cell carcinoma
- squamous cell carcinoma
According to the Cancer Council Of Australia, approximately two in three Australians will be diagnosed with skin cancer by the time they are 70 so early detection is important.
The sooner a skin cancer is identified and treated, the better your chances of recovery are.
At Taylor Clinic, we also assess your level of risk and provide advice on early detection.
Today is a good a time as any to get to know your skin. Become familiar with what your natural skin looks like and you’ll be able to pick up on any changes that might suggest something sinister like skin cancer.
Skin presentations to look for:
- any crusty, non-healing sores
- small lumps that are red, pale or pearly in colour
- new spots, freckles or any moles changing in colour, thickness or shape over a period of weeks to months.
At Taylor Clinic we are well equipped to perform medical mole removal of skin cancer.
Our treatments are determined by:
- the type, size and location of the cancer
- your general health
- any medication you’re taking
- whether the cancer has spread to other parts of your body
If you’ve got a mole that is looking a little out of place, don’t ignore it.
Our team of highly specialised skin doctors can thoroughly examine any moles and schedule the removal if it is determined to be cancerous.
We send off all moles for formal analysis.
