Skin Cancer Screening and Assessment for your Health in Adelaide
If detected early enough, skin problems are often entirely treatable. 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. By tracking your body over time, the doctors at Pro Health Care develop an overall understanding of you, and are able to pick up changes sooner. A regular skin cancer check means you are placed in a better position to receive early treatment and to see you on track for better health.
When should I undertake skin cancer checks?
At Pro Medical SA, even if there are no signs, our medical team recommends a yearly examination for a birthmark bump and mole check. If any moles or lesions have developed or changed in size or nature recently, a doctor will assess and recommend the necessary treatment.
As well as scheduling your annual assessment, you should see your physicians should you notice any of the following signs:
- Changes in a moles size, shape or colour
- The edges of a mole have begun to change
- The mole starts and continues to grow
- The mole is not a solid brown colour, but multicoloured instead
If you notice any of the above, it is advised to go straight to your doctor for an examination. Your doctor will provide you with a thorough and diligent skin check, and scan for symptoms of larger issues.
The GP’s at Pro Health Care have a range of special interests and additional training in the detection and removal of skin cancer.
