Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world. Overexposure to UV radiation from the sun
due to our outdoor lifestyle is the most common cause. Skin cancer can affect anybody, no matter what your age or skin tone.
Early detection and treatment leads to better outcomes in skin cancer management.
Regular skin checks can be performed at the clinic and any suspicious lesions may require a biopsy on the day or you may be booked for an excision.
What does it feel like? The procedure is performed with local anaesthetic. There is some discomfort while administering the local anaesthetic injections while there is no pain during the procedure. Once the anaesthetic effect wears off there may be a dull ache at the operative site.
How long will it take? The excision procedure can be done in a lunch hour for those who find it difficult to get away from work.
