Frequently asked questions

What is something that looks like a pimple but isn't?

Milia cysts can sometimes look like pimples. Milia cysts are benign - that is, they are not skin cancer. If you are concerned about a lesion on your skin, get it checked as soon as possible by a doctor.

Where can I find a skin cancer clinic in Adelaide?

Conveniently located next to Officeworks Gilles Plains, North East Skin Cancer Centre in Gilles Plains is just 30 minutes from the Adelaide CBD. Free on-site parking is available at the front door. If you arrive by car, entry via Wandana Avenue is best. If you're taking public transport, the nearest bus stop is just around the corner at Stop 32 North East Rd.

Who is the best person to check 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.

How often should you get a full skin check?

Annual professional skin cancer checks are the rule of thumb for most people living in Australia from the age of sixteen. However, you may require more frequent skin checks if you have had skin cancer before or if your doctor identifies that you are at high risk. In that case, you may require skin checks every three to six months. Other people at very low risk of skin cancer (as advised by a doctor) may be able to go two years without a skin check, but you should check with your doctor about what is best for you. In between professional full-body checks, you should self-monitor for new or changing lesions and show your doctor immediately if anything develops, even if you are not due for your regular skin check yet.

What should I wear for a full skin check?

Wear clothes that are easy to take on and off - that is, no complicated buttons, time-consuming laces or fiddly garments. Do not wear makeup. You can keep your underwear on during your full-body skin exam. You will be required to undress down to your underwear, and you will be given a gown or sheet for modesty so you are never fully unclothed at one time. If you are not comfortable undressing, you can remove your clothes as much as possible. The more skin we can see, the more thorough the skin check will be. You may bring a chaperone into the room with you. If there is a lesion under your underwear that you would like checked, please let the doctor know.
