About Full Body Skin Checks


  • Skin Cancer Symptoms

    The sooner a skin cancer is identified and treated, the better your chance of avoiding surgery or, in the case of a serious melanoma or other skin cancer, potential disfigurement or even death.

    It is also a good idea to talk to your doctor about your level of risk and for advice on early detection.

    Become familiar with the look of your skin, so you pick up any changes that might suggest a skin cancer.

    Look for:

    • any crusty, non-healing sores
    • small lumps that are red, pale or pearly in colour
    • new spots, freckles or any moles changing in colour, thickness or shape over a period of weeks to months.

  • What we offer

    At the beginning of your skin check appointment, we will go through a few questions before giving you a gown and ask you to dress down to your underwear. The doctor or melanographer will complete a comprehensive head-to-toe skin check using a specialist handheld device called a dermatoscope.

    Any spots of concern that are identified during the skin check will be photographed using a specialised Molemap dermoscopic imaging camera. These images will be forwarded to a Dermatologist for identification and analysis. Within 5 business days a report will be made available, after which time a review appointment should be made at CBD Doctors Melbourne with the requesting doctor to discuss the results and any treatment required.

    After the review appointment, you will be provided with a copy of your results – as well as being given access to important information and education to help reduce your chances of developing skin cancer.
