Our purpose built facilities enable our staff and doctors to provide you with quality care in modern and comfortable surroundings.
Check your skin
If skin cancer is found early, it can often be successfully treated. It is important to get to know your own skin and check it regularly. Remember to check your whole body:
- head and neck—including your scalp, ears, face and lips
- upper body—front, back and sides
- arms and hands—including your nail beds
- buttocks and legs—including the soles of your feet, between your toes and your nail beds.
Changes to look for:
- new moles or moles that increase in size
- changes in the outline of a mole
- a mole that becomes rough, scaly or ulcerated
- moles that itch, tingle, bleed or weep
- a spot or freckle that becomes raised or develops a lump within it
- a spot or freckle that changes colour or is varied in colour
- or spots or freckles that look different from others on your skin.
If you have any concerns about or notice changes on your skin, it is important to have them checked by a doctor.
Tattooed skin is still exposed to ultraviolet radiation (UVR). So if you have a tattoo, check the skin under and around the tattoo carefully. The colour pigments used in the tattooing process can make it harder to detect skin damage and skin cancer.
