Australia has the highest rate of skin cancer in the world. Two out of three Australians will develop skin cancer with over 380,000 people diagnosed every year. Out of all the states, Queensland has the highest rates in the country. Skin cancer is predominantly caused by overexposure to the sun’s ultraviolet radiation (uvr).
Remember to check your skin regularly. See your Doctor if you notice a freckle, mole or lump that is new or changing in size, shape or colour, or a sore that does not heal.
All our Doctors are able to provide advice and perform most minor surgical procedures to remove any concerning skin cancers.
