Skin Checks and Procedures Gardenvale

Did you know the skin is the body’s largest organ? It’s quite important! Your skin plays a critical role when it comes to keeping you safe, so it’s always a good idea to look after it as well as it looks after you.

While your skin helps to protect you from the outside world, it can develop problems of its own. 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 as vital to our overall health and wellbeing as bowel cancer screenings and Pap smears; however, they’re often overlooked or delayed. Newbay Medical Clinic performs skin checks to detect and monitor skin conditions. 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 can refer to our Bayside network of plastic surgeons and dermatologists for lesions that are not within our scope of practice.

Your Questions about Skin 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 issues should be discussed with your doctor at 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. People over 50 are at higher risk for skin cancers. Therefore, it is important to have your skin checked at least once per 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.
