Skin Cancer Clinic Bowral

Skin checks should be a regular practice for all Australians. We recommend a full skin cancer screening at least every 12 months for those over the age of 30 and more often if you are at higher risk of skin cancers.

Skin Cancer Clinic Faqs

How long will a skin cancer clinic screening take?

Our skin cancer screening is thorough and may take between 20-40 minutes, depending on your risk factors and skin type.

What is involved in the skin cancer screening process?

The majority of patients will have a comprehensive head to toe check, which is where the skin is examined with only underwear being left on. 

A more limited examination may be performed if desired by the patient (e.g. exposed areas only, upper half only, or even just a single spot). Privacy is respected at all times and patients may ask for a chaperone to be present if they wish.

The skin is examined with bright light and then dermoscopy is performed using a handheld dermatoscope. 

If need be, we can treat skin cancers and/or abnormal lesions on the spot, either by freezing (cryotherapy), a punch biopsy or surgical excision. Our doctors will also provide advice on general skin care, skin cancer prevention and early detection.
