Skin Cancer Clinic

Did you know that Queensland is the Skin Cancer capital of the world?

That means every 7 minutes a Queenslander is diagnosed with Skin Cancer.
60% of all Queenslanders will suffer some form of Skin Cancer in their life time.
More than 1200 people will die this year due to Skin Cancer.
Skin cancer can occur in areas not exposed to the sun and can be pink, red, pale, multi-toned and raised or flat. Trust nothing!


Mole & Skin Cancer Checks

A 15 minute check up with your doctor could detect any new skin changes.

Annual skin checks are vital for picking up the early signs of cancerous melanomas. Skin cancer checks are quick and pain less and can potentially save your life if detected early.

Our centre offers a full comprehensive skin check with the aid of a non invasive automated FotoFinder machine. FotoFinder is an advanced diagnostic procedure for the documentation and monitoring of the entire surface of the skin from head to toe for moles, melanoma and other skin cancers.

  • The most dangerous skin cancer.
  • If untreated, cancer cells spread to other parts of the body. If treated early, 95% are cured.
  • Appears as a new or existing spot, freckle or mole that changes colour, size or shape.
  • Usually has an irregular or smudgy outline and is more than one colour.
  • Grows over weeks to months, anywhere on the body.
  • A thickened red, scaly spot. Later it may bleed easily or ulcerate.
  • Appears on sites most exposed to the sun.
  • Usually develops from Actinic or Solar Keratosis.
  • Grows over some months.
  • Most common skin cancer and has a very low rate of spreading.
  • Appears as a lump or scaling area.
  • Red, pale or pearly in colour.
  • As it grows it may become ulcerated like an unhealing sore or one that heals then breaks down again.
  • Grows slowly, usually on the head, neck and upper torso.
  • Not skin cancer, but a warning that you may be more prone to melanoma.
  • Often flat, fairly large moles which share some of the features of early melanoma.
  • Characterised by irregular boarders and uneven colour with multiple shades of brown and sometimes pink.
  • A UV light induced lesion of the skin that may progress to invasive SCC.
  • By far the most common lesion with malignant potential to arise on the skin.
  • Characterised by red, flattish, scaling areas which may sting if scratched.
  • Sunspots appear on sun exposed skin in the over 40 age group.
  • Freckles are harmless coloured spots that range in size from 1 to 10mm.
  • Moles are evenly coloured and may be raised although they do not have to be.
  • Moles have clear, even edges and are usually circular or oval in shape.
  • By 60, most people have at least one or two.
  • They have a very discrete edge and frequently sit up on top of the skin.
  • Colour varies from pale skin, through orange to black.
  • Size varies from few millimetres to 2cm.

The “must do” procedure for monitoring at risk patients of melanoma and other skin cancers.

FotoFinder is a state of the art, world class, computerised mole mapping system that the qualified Skin Cancer Doctor uses to create an accurate set of photos of your moles. The high resolution camera is connected to a computer and transfers all photos directly to the doctor’s database, giving your doctor the ability to compare your moles with photos from your initial visit and immediately identify new moles or changes to existing moles on your body.

Photodynamic Therapy

A revolutionary way to treat superficial skin cancers, actinic keratosis, sun damaged, blemished and aged skin on all areas of the body.

By using PDT’s non-invasive light technology, our doctors can now treat a range of skin conditions in a fast, relatively pain-less and affordable way with minimal side effects and downtime. PDT is an alternative treatment to cryotherapy, skin cancers creams or surgery, all of which can potentially leave unsightly scars. PDT has no documented history of scarring and provides excellent cosmetic results especially in cosmetically sensitive areas.

PDT also has many cosmetic benefits for your skin to help improve the overall health, look and feel of your skin. PDT provides exceptional cosmetic results for sun damaged and aged skin, rosacea, acne, large pores, fine lines, pigmentation and skin discolouration. PDT is also very effective in bringing new life to aged skin in areas that in the past have been hard to treat such as the décolletage, arms, hands and legs.
Why PDT is a great option:

  • Treats superficial skin cancer
  • Rosacea
  • Acne
  • Precancerous skin lesion (Actinic Keratosis)
  • Skin rejuvenation
  • Solar damage & pigmentation
  • Avoids the need for surgery and scarring
  • Minimal side effects and down time
  • The treatment is able to be customised to your individual needs (especially cost vs downtime).
  • Does not prevent you from undergoing any other cosmetic, medical or surgical procedures in the future
