SKIN CANCER surgery

As skin cancer specialists, we treat common malignant skin lesions with a focus on melanoma surgery. Skin Cancer treatment involves the removal and reconstruction of the area to minimise the appearance of scarring, where possible.

What is SKIN CANCER?

Skin cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal skin cells. It is the most common of all cancers. Australia has the highest incidence of skin cancer in the world; more than two-thirds of the Australian population will develop a skin cancer of some kind during their lives.

Skin cancer usually occurs in people who have been exposed to too much ultraviolet (UV) light from the sun. People in the higher risk category of developing skin cancer usually have:

- Fair skin and freckle easily
- Light-coloured hair and eyes
- A large number of moles, or moles of unusual size or shape
- A family history of skin cancer or a personal history of blistering sunburn
- Spent a lot of time working or playing outdoors
- Intense, year-round sun exposure.

This includes people who live closer to the equator, at a higher altitude, or in any place that gets intense sunshine
