Skin Checks and Procedures Sandringham

Did you know that the skin is the largest organ in the body? 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. A skin check can help you determine if it’s a dangerous mole, or a smudge left over from your kids’ breakfast.

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. 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. For lesions outside of our scope of practice, we call upon our trusted referral network of dermatologists and plastic surgeons in the Bayside area.

Your Skin Questions Answered

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

It is difficult to provide cost transparency with such an individualised service, as costs vary widely depending on the required procedure, how long it may take, and the equipment needed. Please talk with your doctor about these issues during your appointment.

Everybody should have a skin exam, regardless of age. Your doctor can discuss your skin risks with you and determine how often your skin should be 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.

The majority of skin cancers are caused by ultraviolet (UV), but genes, chemicals, and other factors can cause skin cancer 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.
