Skin Checks

At Willoughby 7 Days Medical Centre our specialised team of practitioners are trained to diagnose, analyse and remove skin lesions. We emphasise the importance of early detection through regular self-examination and routine checks with your GP.

Regular skin checks are encouraged for all Australians, even more so for those with risk factors.

Your doctor can evaluate your risk level and guide you on self-examination techniques. Understanding your skin and recognising changes is vital as skin cancers are often seen, rather than felt.

A skin check involves a comprehensive examination of the skin’s surface. During this check, your doctor will review your skin for any noticeable changes, irregularities or concerning spots. It is a fundamental assessment suitable for most individuals seeking routine skin health evaluations

Certain traits can increase skin cancer risk, including:

A lighter natural skin tone
Skin that easily burns, freckles, reddens easily, or becomes painful in the sun
Blue or green eyes
Blonde or red hair
Certain types and large number of moles
A family history or previous personal history of skin cancer

The Cancer Council recommends adults self-check their skin and moles every 3-months.

Those at risk should have a trained doctor examine them at least once a year, or as frequently as recommended by their practitioner.

Some individuals may require a skin check sooner than others, including those with:

Higher risk - individuals with a family history of skin cancer or personal history of skin conditions predisposing them to higher risk.
Multiple concerning spots - if you have numerous spots of concern or notice changes in multiple areas of your skin.
Specific areas of concern - especially crucial for moles or lesions located on sensitive areas, such as the face or neck, which would require delicate care and consideration of the best cosmetic outcome.
*If required, most excisions and biopsies can be performed at Willoughby 7 Day Medical Centre following an initial skin check.
