Skin cancer is treatable if detected early enough. Most people have many moles, freckles and birthmarks on their bodies, but since they are so common, it is easy not to notice any slight changes in them.
What should you look for?
- Changes in a moles size, shape, colour or if the edges being to change
- If a mole starts and continues to grow
- If a mole is not a solid brown colour, but multicoloured
What should you do?
- It is advised to go straight to your doctor for an examination.
Even if there are no signs of skin cancer, our medical team recommends a yearly examination to check all moles, birthmarks and skin bumps. Now that it is summer, it is the ideal time to conduct this type of check up. Contact our reception team for an appointment on 8356 2299
