Skin Checks and Procedures Caulfield South

Did you know that skin is the largest organ of the body? It’s a pretty big deal! It plays an important role in keeping you safe. So it is always a good idea for you to take care of your skin.

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 the same for our overall health and well-being as Pap smears and bowel cancer screenings. But they are often missed or delayed. At Newbay Medical Clinic, we provide skin checks to determine skin conditions, monitor changes and detect 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. Our Bayside-based network of dermatologists, plastic surgeons and other specialists can help us with lesions, not within our practice.

Your Questions about Skin Answered

The number and type of treatments you require will vary depending upon your particular circumstances.

Because each service is unique, it can be difficult to give costs transparency. Prices vary depending on the type of procedure and equipment required. Please talk with your doctor about these issues during your appointment.

Everybody should have a skin exam, regardless of age. To determine how often you should have your skin checked, your doctor will talk to you about your risk factors. 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.
