APPOINTMENT INFORMATION

What will happen during your appointment

Your appointment will take 15-20 minutes. We undertake a full evaluation and skin check. This includes taking a background history to asses your risk of skin cancer and discussing any previous skin cancer issues. After this we undertake a full skin check. Please ensure you:

  • Wear comfortable clothing that can easily be removed
  • Avoid wearing make up, fake tan or nail polish if possible.

SKIN CANCER CLINIC MOUNT MARTHA – Top to toe skin check

After your evaluation at MP SKIN CHECK your doctor will perform a top to toe full body check using a skin microscope. If required, moles that have any unusual features will be photographed for future comparison.

Any suspicious lesions will trigger a plan of treatment, which usually involves a biopsy. Simple biopsies or treatments such as liquid nitrogen (freezing) may be treated in the same appointment. Most people have an ‘all clear’ check and a reminder is then set for the next routine full body check (usually in about 1 year).

Children’s skin checks – Children are welcome but usually have a very low risk of showing any signs of skins cancer. We recommend regular skin checks starting from late teens or early adulthood.

If further treatment is required

If a biopsy reveals a skin cancer this will usually require additional treatment.  The vast majority of these procedures are available to be performed on site at MP Skin Check. For more complex procedures or those in cosmetically sensitive areas (i.e. the face), Dr. Edwards will discuss with you your options for treatment, which may include a referral to a local surgeon.
