Top 3 Reasons to Get a Skin Check Today at a Skin Cancer Clinic!

  1. Prevention

    Skin care is all about protection. When you come in for your bulk-billed skin check at our Skin Cancer Clinic, we will introduce proper prevention strategies to reduce your chances of getting skin cancer. Some of these include:
    – Reducing UV exposure (Hats, sunscreen…the basic stuff)
    – Using a reliable sunscreen (SPF 50+)
    – Avoiding tanning beds (Direct UV radiation)
    – Monthly self-checks (Where to check and how)
    – Regular skin checks (Our doctors will do the precise checks)
    At our Bulk Billed Skin cancer clinic, we make sure that we are you understand how and why skin cancer checks are important.

  2. Early Detection in hidden areas

    Early detection is key to minimizing cancers and their impact on a patient’s life. When the cancer is found early, especially when pre-cancerous, the cancer has not moved and is quite small. As a result, the removal is quicker, efficient, and less traumatic. Recovery time is also greatly reduced. On the contrary, when cancer is left long term undetected, this can lead to death or long doses of chemotherapy/radiation therapy which negatively impact the quality of life. During your bulk-billed consultation, the doctor will assess different parts of your body that you may have trouble visualizing or feeling. This allows us to check areas and assess places that have not been seen regularly.

  3. Better Treatment

    When cancers or unusual growths are found early, there is a much higher rate of curability. While melanoma is a much more serious type of skin cancer due to its aggressive growth, this type of cancer can also be cured if found early.

What is a Skin Check and why is it important to be done at a Skin cancer clinic?

A Skin Check or Skin Exam is where the doctor will look at your skin for any abnormalities. They will identify any pre-cancerous areas or cancerous areas, whilst providing advice on maintaining better skin. The doctor will examine your skin under magnification and will also complete a full exam. Usually, the doctor will find moles, scarring, or other abnormalities and treat them using cryotherapy or surgery. At our skin cancer clinic, we make sure that you are well informed about the quality and nature of any abnormal signs with thorough investigations. Early detection is very important when dealing with pre-cancerous and cancerous cells, where survival rates change dramatically. In our Skin cancer clinic in Merrylands, we not only look at the disease of cancer and pre-cancer but also the cosmetic side when considering removal of any type of cancer. Not only is it important to remove the cancers but it is important that the scar tissue is minimal. Experience is key when proceeding with skin cancer removal and as such, Dr Daniel Isacson is an excellent doctor and was a Swedish plastic surgeon who has much experience in cosmetic reconfiguration.

Merrylands Bulk Billed Varicose Vein Removal

5 Reasons to get Varicose veins removed!

  1. Aesthetics
    Varicose veins can look quite disfiguring, and they only get worse as time goes by. It’s a sad truth, but by leaving varicose veins unattended, the swollen vein gets worse and is harder to repair. Your options for solving varicose veins are sclerotherapy or surgery. Sclerotherapy is relatively non-invasive and can be just as effective compared to surgery in the majority of circumstances. If you are concerned about your varicose veins, read below on our process (bulk billed) on how to get rid of them!
  2. Constant pain, throbbing, and tenderness in the legs
    This needs no explaining. Once it gets to this stage, it is quite debilitating. It takes more energy for your body to circulate the same amount of blood. There is of course the risks of blood clots and these can lead to dire consequences such as strokes and heart attacks. Prevent is better than cure. If you think you have varicose veins, or are concerned about long-standing veins, please make a consult with our surgeon, who will assess and let you know the best course of action. We have bulk-billed these consults for your benefit.
  3. Skin sores and ulcers
    Skin sores and ulcers occur as certain parts of the body take more pressure and have repeated friction. These areas are usually when the varicose veins have started to bulge and they take more pressure than other areas. This ulceration and soreness brings about more swelling and makes the varicose vein bulge more.
  4. Blood clots
    As the vein gets rubbed against, it is quite fragile. Bleeding can occur internally as blood clots and can cause bruising or floating blood clots in the body.
  5. Bleeding from the veins
    As mentioned previously, veins are fragile. Veins are usually wrapped inside the body and well protected. When they come to the surface, any small trauma can cause the vein to pop and this can be quite dangerous. Bleeding out is rare, but it can be quite traumatic to deal with. It is best to dissolve these veins before that cause havoc in your life. If you would like to get more information on varicose vein removal, please discuss with our bulked billed surgeon. The process is listed below.

What is really going on in a varicose vein?

Come to our Merrylands Clinic for surgical varicose vein removal. Varicose veins are enlarged blood vessels that form beneath the skin surface. The one-way valves in the veins that would normally channel the blood back to the heart do not function properly, causing blood to ‘pool’ in the veins. These veins can become large, painful & unattractive and can cause symptoms such as tired, heavy, aching, burning, itching or cramping legs.

Depending on the severity of your varicose veins they may be suitable for injection therapy. This procedure can be done in my rooms. No preparation is required. We will advise you on your first consultation whether your veins are suitable. If your veins are suitable you will need to purchase a pair of gradient compression stockings before the procedure being carried out. There are several brands available (Venosan, Jobst etc) and most large chemist shops carry a range.

Our varicose vein removals are performed by our talented surgical consultant, Doctor Paramalingam Lingathas.

Treatment

A tiny needle is used to inject a sclerosing solution directly into the unwanted vein. The solution acts on the inner lining of the vein, causing it to shrink so that no more blood can flow through the unwanted vein. Within weeks, the unused vein is absorbed by the body & eventually becomes barely noticeable or invisible. Following injection the leg is placed in a gradient compression stocking which helps the lining of the collapsed vein stick together. As these stockings are quite hot to wear most patients have their treatments in the cooler months of the year. Patients are advised to walk following the procedure, which forces the blood to flow through other healthy blood vessels nearby. A vein may need to be injected more than once, depending on its size. In any one treatment session, a number of veins can be injected. Several sessions may be needed for any vein region, depending on the type and number of veins being treated.
