Full Body Skin Cancer Checks at CBD Doctors Melbourne

Every year, skin cancers account for about 80% of newly diagnosed cancers in Australia ... in fact almost two in three Australians will be diagnosed with skin cancer by the age of 70. Early detection is key in ensuring adequate treatment is provided to patients.

Australia and New Zealand have high incidence of skin cancers. If you are fair skinned, burn easily and/or have Northern European ancestors, you are at higher risk of skin cancer. If you have many moles and “atypical moles" or a personal or family history of melanoma you are at even higher risk. You may not only need annual skin checks, you may need full body photography (molemapping).

CBD Doctors Melbourne offers a comprehensive full body skin check and photography service. Molemapping (full body photography) is the newest and the most sophisticated touch free and automated full body photography and dermoscopy that uses artificial Intelligence to detect skin cancer early. It is highly recommended for patients at high risk of skin cancer.

About Full Body Skin Checks

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 may 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.

(from the Cancer Council).

 

At CBD Doctors Melbourne we provide two types of skin checks depending on your risk level:

1. Full body, head to toe, examination with a dermatoscope

2. Full body automated body mapping using the latest AI technology.

During your skin check you will be educated on sun protection, skin self-examination and any follow up guidelines.

All lesions that may need further attention will be explained and followed up as required.

The follow up’s could be another examination in few month’s time, referral to a specialist, a biopsy or removal.
