Skin Checks & Mole Removal
At Eastlink Family Medical, we provide comprehensive skin cancer screening and management. It is extremely important to check your skin regularly and to be aware of any unusual changes you may notice. You may also refer to the Sun Smart guide on the appearance of harmful spots:
A skin cancer check-up assesses your skin cancer risk and indicates any current problems of concern. This check-up includes taking your medical history, as well as undertaking a detailed examination of your skin.
We recommend having a skin cancer check-up once a year, however, if you are concerned about a mole or skin spot, please contact us immediately.
We have the equipment necessary to assess any areas of concern on your skin. Call us today to book an appointment as soon as possible if you have noticed anything of concern – most skin cancers can be treated successfully if found and diagnosed early.
As part of our Skin Cancer Clinic, we are able to take biopsies of lesions to send for testing. This allows for accurate diagnosis and to decide further recommendations for management.
Please see our Fees page for details regarding pricing.
