At Langwarrin Medical clinic we have expertise in performing full skin cancer checkups, skin biopsies and skin cancer removals. Skin cancer is a very common form of cancer in Australia. Australia has one of the highest skin cancer incidence rates in the world, with two out of three Australians diagnosed with skin cancer by the time they are 70.
Most of the deaths associated with skin cancer are preventable. It is therefore important to detect these cancers early, since the earlier a skin cancer is detected the easier it is to cure.
Langwarrin Medical Clinic provides regular skin cancer checks, particularly for people who spend a lot of time in the sun. Although skin cancers mostly appear on the face, head, back and upper limbs, they can appear anywhere on the body.
We inspect spots, moles and freckles, and any other marks that may be of concern using a variety of techniques, including the latest technology to diagnose and treat skin cancers. Today there are a number of treatment options available, including creams, cryoptherapy (freezing with liquid nitrogen) or surgical removal, which are suitable for some cancers and pre-cancers.
