Diagnosis and treatment
Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in Australia, with 80 per cent of all cancers diagnosed in Australia being skin cancer. Queensland has the highest rate of skin cancer in the world. The early diagnosis and treatment of skin cancer can dramatically improve the outcome. We recommend that you receive yearly skin checks for early detection and to make an appointment if you have any concerns with existing skin lesions.
Skin cancer is diagnosed by skin examination and biopsy. The treatment choice will depend on your age and general health, the type and size of cancer where it is in your body and what you want.
Our doctors offer the most common way to treat skin cancer such as surgery, cryotherapy, use of topical chemotherapy, curettage, and cautery as appropriate.
