Our Mission is to save lives and improve your health by the early diagnosis and treatment of skin cancers.
The dedicated Team at Melanoma Scan is comprised of specially trained general practitioners and reception staff who are dedicated to the delivery of excellence in health care for skin cancer patients. Our doctors use advanced imaging technology to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of skin cancers. Removal of skin cancers are done through the use of both surgical and non-surgical treatments and via the use of plastic surgical techniques when required to ensure the best cosmetic outcome for skin cancer removal as possible.
Living in Australia you have a higher risk of skin damage as a result of increased exposure to the sun. Australians have a 2 in 3 chance of developing skin cancer in their lifetime. A simple yearly skin check can detect issues early and can save your life. Melanoma affects about 1 in 30 people in Australia, and kills more than a 1000 people a year.
Skin tags are small benign growths attached to the skin by a small thin stalk. Skin tag removal is a simple process completed by a doctor. Removing skin tags at home can be painful and often bleed heavily or become infected.
Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) is a treatment based around the compound of two chemicals. Both chemicals specifically bind to premalignant or cancerous cells, and when activated by a bright light, form a reaction that kills the affected cells.
