Skin Checks and Procedures Bentleigh

Did you know that skin is the largest organ of the body? It’s an important organ! It is a very important part of your safety, so take care of it!

Although your skin is designed to protect you from the external world, there are some problems that can occur. When you’re unsure if that’s a dangerous mole or a smudge from the kids’ breakfast (and we’ve all been there), a skin check can make all the difference.

Skin Checks at Newbay Medical Clinic

Skin checks are just like important for our overall well-being and health as bowel screenings and regular Pap tests. However, they’re often ignored or delayed. Newbay Medical Clinic offers skin checks to assess skin conditions, detect changes, and monitor for potential skin cancers. Finding a skin cancer lesion early can be the difference between an in-office 30-minute procedure and needing a large area resected by a plastic surgeon, so when you notice a change, don’t delay in getting it checked out!

Our Skin Procedures

At Newbay Medical Clinic, we provide skin checks and identify and remove lesions whenever possible. We refer to the Bayside’s trusted network of dermatologists as well as plastic surgeons for any lesions beyond our scope of expertise.

Your Skin Questions Answered

The number of treatments you may need will vary depending on your individual circumstances, such as your skin condition and the size and location of any lesions.

With such a personal service it is difficult to give cost transparency as the costs can vary depending on what the procedure will take and how much equipment is needed. These should be discussed with the doctor during the appointment.

Everyone should have their skin checked, regardless of their age. Your doctor will discuss with you your skin’s risks and recommend how often you should have it checked. Over-50s are more likely to develop skin cancers so it is recommended that you have your skin checked at the very least once a calendar year.

Although ultraviolet (UV) radiation is the most common cause of skin cancer, genetics and other factors like chemicals and pollutants can also lead to skin cancer.

Most health insurance policies will cover skin checks, but it’s best to confirm with your provider to be sure. Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in Australia, so getting regular check-ups is important for early detection.
The Australian government recommends that everyone over the age of 18 should have a regular skin check every 12 months. If you have a family history of skin cancer, or if you have any other risk factors, you may need to be checked more frequently.
During a skin check, your doctor will examine your skin from head to toe, looking for any unusual moles or changes in your skin. They will also ask about any changes you may have noticed yourself. If anything suspicious is found, a biopsy may be taken. This is a simple procedure where a small sample of tissue is removed and sent for further testing.
We suggest people begin getting regular skin checks from the age of 18, or earlier if they have any risk factors for skin cancer. However, it’s never too late to start getting checked – no matter your age, skin cancer can affect anyone.
We suggest getting a routine skin check completed once per year . However, if you have a family history of skin cancer or any other risk factors, you may need to be checked more frequently. It’s always best to speak with your doctor to find out what’s best for you.
