SKIN CANCER CLINIC

At Hornsby Fountain Medical Centre we are committed to:

  • Raising skin cancer awareness and provide active preventative skin cancer information, advice and care plus;
  • Ensuring we have the in-house capabilities to perform skin cancer checks, melanoma checks, mole removals and regular follow-ups.
  • Our skin cancer clinic is fully bulk billed

Our GP’s are trained in early detection, diagnosis, treatment and ongoing management of all types of skin cancer.
Our skin cancer checks are bulk-billed including minor procedures such as biopsies, minor surgeries and cryotherapy (liquid nitrogen freezing).

At Hornsby Fountain Medical Centre, we believe that ‘Prevention is better than cure and an early detection of skin cancer can Save Your Life’

TYPE OF SKIN CANCERS

There are three types of skin cancers you should be aware of:

  • Melanoma - the least common but most dangerous affecting our young Australians
  • Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC) - the most common but least dangerous
  • Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC) - somewhere in between the above two

The ABCD of melanoma detection can be a useful guide when checking your skin.

ABCD melanoma detection guide

A is for Asymmetry -
Look for spots that lack symmetry. That is, if a line was drawn through the middle, the two sides would not match up.

B is for Border -
A spot with a spreading or irregular edge (notched).

 

C is for Colour -
Blotchy spots with a number of colours such as black, blue, red, white and/or grey.

D is for Diameter -
Look for spots that are getting bigger.

These are some changes to look out for when checking your skin for signs of any cancer:

  • New moles.
  • Moles that increases in size.
  • An outline of a mole that becomes notched.
  • A spot that changes colour from brown to black or is varied.
  • A spot that becomes raised or develops a lump within it.
  • The surface of a mole becoming rough, scaly or ulcerated.
