Cancer Council Australia recommends that you should see a doctor if you notice a new spot, or changes in the colour, size or shape of existing spots. For high risk individuals, they also recommend full skin examinations every 6 months, supported by dermoscopy and total body photography.
In our busy lives, it can easily slip the mind when 6 months is due to come around. We can send you an SMS reminder a couple of weeks before you are due for your next visit, and simply jump onto our online booking portal to select a time that suits your availability, or call/email the team to book in for you.
Once you get your skin professionally checked it is important to continue to look out for changes in your moles or spots regularly. No one remains risk-free. It is recommended to check your own skin regularly (every 3 months). If you notice any changes in your skin, spots or moles, Book an appointment straight away.
