Frequently Asked Questions

Skin cancer is an abnormal growth of skin cells, usually caused by exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun or tanning beds. There are three main types of skin cancer: basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma.

The best way to protect your skin from the sun is to limit your exposure, especially during peak UV radiation hours (10 a.m. to 4 p.m.). Wear protective clothing, such as long-sleeved shirts and hats, and use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 50. Avoid tanning beds and seek shade whenever possible.

Factors including skin type and the number of spots on your skin will affect the time taken to complete a skin cancer check. A typical skin cancer check will take anywhere between 15 minutes and 30 minutes and involves a visual examination of your skin by a SkinFirst™ Skin Cancer Doctor using a special magnified dermatoscope. If any suspicious moles or lesions are found, a biopsy may be taken for further examination. It’s best not to wear any make up or have any zinc cream on for your skin check.

It is recommended that adults have a full body skin check every 1 to 2 years depending on skin type, exposure risk and family history. The Cancer Council Australia recommends having an annual skin check and more frequent consultations if you are aged over 50.

SkinFirst™ Skin Cancer Doctors use a dermatoscope to identify any suspicious moles, spots, or areas of concern on the skin. Skin cancer is formally diagnosed through a surgical biopsy, where a small sample of skin is removed and examined under a microscope.

The treatment for skin cancer depends on the type and stage of the cancer. The vast majority of skin cancers are surgically removed from your skin. Other treatment options include medicated skin creams, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and immunotherapy.

Factors that increase your risk of skin cancer include fair skin, a history of sunburns, a family history of skin cancer, and a weakened immune system.
