We go above and beyond to ensure your skin health needs are met with expert diagnosis and treatment. We strive to deliver prompt, efficient and effective treatments that minimise scarring. Most skin cancers can be completely cured if detected early.
The treatment you receive will depend on multiple factors:
Some skin cancers are removed with surgery. This involves excising the cancerous spot using a scalpel blade, after the area is numbed with a local anaesthetic. The doctor will remove a margin of surrounding tissue as well, to ensure the entire skin cancer has been successfully excised. The wound is sealed with sutures and dressed.
There are also non-surgical treatment options, which the doctor will consider if appropriate. These include:
If your skin cancer is at an advanced stage or has spread to other organs, we will assist you with onward referral to undergo radiotherapy or chemotherapy. Don’t worry – if detected early, this is a highly unlikely outcome.
