Early detection is key to fast, effective skin cancer treatment. As a local and affordable skin check service, based within a GP clinic, Mole Screen makes it as easy as possible to have any issues with your skin identified as quickly as possible.
An audit of our clinic showed that the number of lesions tested to find one melanoma was 8:1. The percentage of lesions tested for non melanoma skin cancer, that were lab confirmed non melanoma skin cancer, was 75%. These statistics mean a skin check at Mole Screen is less likely to result in benign skin lesions being removed unnecessarily, and that cancerous lesions that do need to be removed are targeted, minimising extra cost, health scares and scars.
Using advanced dermoscopy and the latest skin screening technology at our skin check clinic, Dr Morrison is able to detect changes in moles and other lesions and see the signs of melanoma on your skin before they can be easily seen by the naked eye. If a cancerous or pre-cancerous mole or skin lesion is found, he is usually able to remove it immediately or do it at another appointment, within a short period of time. Anyone with a confirmed invasive melanoma or large lesion is referred to a plastic surgeon.
