Frequently Asked Questions

Why are skin cancer checks important in Brisbane and around Queensland?

Queensland is the skin cancer capital of the world, with melanoma diagnoses reaching up to 82% higher than the national average Early detection provides the best chances of successful treatment.

If you are at a high risk for or have already been diagnosed with skin cancer, it is essential to have a skilled medical practitioner examine your skin at least once a year or every few months. A frequent self-examination is also a great technique to monitor your skin between skin checks, but it should not be depended on to detect everything because skin cancer is sometimes imperceptible to the human eye.

The doctors with professional training in skin cancer who work at our clinics in Brisbane and Queensland will perform a comprehensive examination of your skin, searching for moles, freckles, or any other indications of skin cancer.

Am I at risk of skin cancer?

Over one million skin cancers are treated every year in Australia - more than 100 every hour! People living in Brisbane and Queensland may be at particularly high risk because UV levels tend to remain above 3, which means sunburn and skin cell damage happens all year-round. You may be at even higher risk if you:

  • Have had skin cancer before
  • Have a family history of melanoma
  • Have lots of moles
  • Have fair skin or fair hair
  • Have blue or green eyes
  • Are aged over 40
  • Work outdoors or regularly enjoy outdoor activities
  • Have ever been severely sunburnt
  • Have ever used a solarium (tanning bed)
  • Are male
What are the types of skin cancer?

Basal cell carcinoma (BCC)

The most common form of skin cancer but the least dangerous. The disease usually occurs on the upper body, head, and neck. Symptoms include lumps or dry, scaly areas. Basal cell carcinoma can be red, pale or pearly in colour. In time, it may become ulcerated or appear like an unhealed sore.

Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC)

It is not as dangerous as melanoma, but it can spread to other parts of the body if left untreated. Over several months, it grows on sun-exposed skin. It can look like a thickened, red, scaly spot that bleeds easily, crusts or ulcerates.


A very dangerous form of skin cancer that claims one life every five hours in Australia. It often appears as a skin lesion that is different from the other lesions on your body, with irregular borders and multiple colours, but some melanomas are invisible or show no signs at all.

What are skin checks?

In Brisbane and Queensland, a skin cancer examination takes between 15 and 30 minutes. Our medical doctors will evaluate your head, face, neck, chest, legs, feet, toes, arms, hands, and fingers. You will be expected to disrobe to your underwear, and a gown or blanket will be available for your convenience.

Skin malignancies may grow anywhere on the body, so if you discover worrisome areas under your underwear, you should inform your doctor. The genital region is rarely typically inspected, so the doctor will only examine these areas at your request.

How often should I get my skin checked?

If you have a high risk of skin cancer and live in Brisbane or Queensland, you may need regular skin cancer checks.

A follow-up skin check may be done once or twice a year or every few months. You will get reminders to check your skin often, but it's a good idea to keep your own records.

How can a doctor with advanced skin cancer training help me?

Our skin clinics are designed for examining, diagnosing and treating skin cancer, all in one location. About 99 per cent of skin cancers are curable if detected and treated early.

A regular skin cancer check is your best defence against complex surgeries, costly procedures, and even death. Our doctors have a wealth of experience, skills and recognised certifications in skin cancer care and utilise the latest skin cancer detection and treatment tools.
