Frequently asked questions
What kind of skin cancer looks like a blister?
Nodular melanoma can sometimes look like a blister. If you have any lesions that stand out from the rest or aren't healing on their own after weeks or months, you should get it checked by a doctor.

Sunshine Coast Skin Cancer Centre in Birtinya is conveniently located at the Surgical and Specialist Centre (orange building) on Innovation Parkway. Free on-site parking is provided at the door with Security Parking Marshalls assisting during the morning. Please allow plenty of time as it can get quite busy.

What does malignant skin cancer look like?
Melanoma typically stands out as looking different from the rest of the lesions on your skin and often shows one of the ABCD signs: Asymmetry, irregular Border, multiple Colours, or Diameter larger than 6mm. Non-melanoma skin cancers such as squamous or basal cell carcinomas can appear as a scaly red patch on sun-exposed areas of the skin, an open sore that won't heal, a rough or thick patch of irritated skin, a raised growth, or even a blister. They can become crusty and easily bleed. Skin cancers may show no symptoms at all, which is why regular professional skin checks are so important.
Do you feel ill with melanoma?
In its advanced stages, melanoma of the skin can spread to other organs of the body and become fatal. Some early signs of spreading include hard or swollen lymph nodes, pain, feeling tired or unwell, weight loss, yellow eyes and skin, stomach pain, and more. The good news is that melanoma is usually curable if detected early, before it can spread, which is why regular professional skin checks are so important.
Who checks for skin cancer?
Doctors with advanced training in skin cancer medicine perform comprehensive skin checks in dedicated facilities that are fully equipped to diagnose, biopsy and treat all skin cancers using the latest tools and technologies for earliest diagnosis. They have advanced qualifications and dedicate their practise full-time to skin cancer management.
