Frequently asked questions
Can new moles appear in adulthood?
Typically, all the moles and freckles we will develop in our lifetimes appear during our childhood. It is possible to develop new benign moles in adulthood, but you should get everything new checked out by a doctor as a safety precaution, because new moles after 30 have a higher chance of being malignant (cancerous).
Where can I find a skin cancer clinic in Byron Bay?
The Bright Side Medical and Skin Cancer Centre in Byron Bay is located in Byron Bay Fair next door to a pharmacy and radiology with lots of parking off Bayshore Drive!
Is my mole melanoma?
The only definitive way to identify a skin malignancy is to have it assessed by a doctor with training in skin cancer medicine, who will examine the lesion with a dermatoscope and perform a biopsy, which is sent to a pathology lab to confirm the diagnosis. Skin cancer cannot be diagnosed with the naked eye, but in between professional skin checks you can self-monitor for any spots that are crusting, bleeding, itching, standing out from the rest, or new or changing in any way.
