Skin First Skin Cancer clinic is a dedicated skin cancer clinic with doctors specifically trained in skin cancer detection, treatment and management. Located inside Mona Vale Medical Centre on the Northern Beaches.
The clinic provides comprehensive skin cancer detection, treatment and ongoing management for all your skin cancer needs.
2 out of 3 Australians will develop skin cancer before the age of 70. Australia has one of the highest rates of melanoma in the world.
People residing on the Northern Beaches generally live a life in the sun and are very active in the outdoors.
This makes regular skin checks even more important for Northern Beaches residents.
Skin First Skin Cancer Clinic utilises state of the art diagnostic equipment and monitoring software, allowing them to monitor and compare changes in skin spots over time, and to highlight new spots when they appear. Your skin doctor will take photos when required utilising specialised equipment, which can then be compared at future appointments.
Common skin cancers of concern are melanoma, BCC and SCC. Skin First can offer biopsy, excisions and complex grafts and flaps all on-site if required to treat any of these skin cancers.
Effective treatment of skin cancer relies on early detection. So it is vital to have regular skin checks and to monitor your skin between your skin check appointments.
