Skin Checks and Procedures Hampton

Did you realise that the skin is your largest organ? It’s a pretty big deal! 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 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. Our Bayside-based network of dermatologists, plastic surgeons and other specialists can help us with lesions, not within our practice.

We are happy to schedule a consultation for you to discuss your procedure.

Answers to Your Skin Questions

The number of treatments required will vary according to your individual circumstances.

Cost identification is not possible for such individualised services. The costs of each procedure vary widely, depending on how long they take and what equipment is required. These should be discussed with the doctor during the appointment.

No matter your age, anyone who is concerned about their skin needs a skin examination. Your doctor will discuss your risks with you to determine how frequently you should have your skin 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.

While ultraviolet (UV) radiation is responsible for the majority of skin cancers, genes and other factors such as chemicals and pollutants can cause skin cancer to develop anywhere on the body.

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.
