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.
- 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.
- 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.
