Patient education

Skin Cancer Patient education

Our doctors are dedicated to providing the highest standard in patient education, from advice on how to prevent skin cancer, to understanding the risk factors, to learning how to self-assess your skin and detect suspicious spots. We advocate for skin cancer awareness for both our patients and the communities, because early detection of skin cancer is the best way to cure it. The first person to notice an abnormal mole is usually you, so it is very important that you are properly educated on what to look for.

Our doctors will take the time to explain the whole process of a skin check without any medical jargon, all the way from what to expect during a skin examination to the results of your biopsy. They will also supply you with information materials about self-assessment and the proper application of sunscreen.

We help our patients maintain beautiful and healthy skin by providing reliable advice on protecting their skin from skin cancer, sun damage, wrinkles, visible signs of ageing, and other skin conditions. Our doctors will take the time to address your skin health needs to keep your skin looking youthful, refreshed, and rejuvenated.

We also regularly deliver education programs throughout the community to educate non-medical professionals, such as hairdressers and tattoo artists, on how to help detect skin cancer while working with their customers. Our mission is to save lives and we do this through regular community talks and information nights to promote the prevention and early detection of skin cancer. 

We can provide on-site full-body and exposed-area skin cancer screenings, skin cancer education, and facial skin assessments at your workplace or community group.

Our doctors and support staff regularly undergo university-assured professional development training to ensure they are always up-to-date with the latest research, knowledge and techniques regarding skin cancer.
