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.
