My most memorable patient: Why you should encourage your loved ones to get a skin check

Posted by National Skin Cancer Centres on Jun 26, 2020 4:00:24 PM

Did you know that skin cancer can affect anyone and occur anywhere on the body, and it often shows no symptoms until an advanced stage?

Encouraging your loved ones to get a regular skin check could save their life, as detecting problems early offers the best chance of successful treatment!


"Every time I come for my routine skin check, my wife reminds me that I owe her a life debt."


Helping your loved ones to maintain their skin health makes a real difference and brings us one step closer to realising our vision of a world where nobody dies from skin cancer.

If you've been diagnosed with melanoma, your siblings, parents and children have a 50 per cent greater chance of developing the deadly disease as well, so it's important to remind them about their potentially life-saving skin check.

We asked Skin Cancer Doctor Hamilton Ayres to tell us about his most memorable patient, whose life was saved when his wife urged him to get a skin check. Watch the full story in this short video:

We are happy to address you and your loves ones' skin concerns with expert consultations, accurate diagnoses and personalised treatments. Our main aim is to deliver to you the highest standard of care and the utmost peace of mind!
