Skin Cancer Clinic
Queensland is known as the Sunshine State, and we thoroughly enjoy our weather most of the year. However, the constant sun exposure puts us at the highest rates of skin cancers in the world.
Highly Experienced in Skin Cancer Treatment
Early-detection and treatment of skin cancer is paramount to ensuring a quick and simple road to recovery. To avoid requiring surgery, or in the case of a serious melanoma, disfigurement or death, it’s important to schedule periodic skin cancer check-ups.
If you are concerned at any stage about any changes to your skin (e.g. moles, sun spots, ulcers) we encourage you to make an appointment as soon as possible. A quick skin check is a great starting point for anyone wanting peace of mind.
In addition to this, it is a good idea to get regular skin checks. The frequency of these skin checks depends on your age, your sun exposure and predisposing factors, but generally as you get older more regular skin checks are required (usually annual skin checks are adequate).
Our Skin Health Services
Early detection is vital, and the majority of skin cancers, if detected early, can be successfully treated and cured.
Our doctors have access to the assistance of many dermatologists and plastic surgeons if needed for our patients’ convenience.
Within Warner Family Medical Practice, we also run Warner Skin Cancer Clinic which is led by Dr. Ala Melati, who obtained his Masters in Skin Cancer Medicine in 2012. Dr. Melati spends his time researching and collaborating with the University of Queensland as a senior lecturer and is also registered with the Skin Cancer College Australasia.
No referral is required. We provide digital imaging of skin cancer and boast a state-of-the-art procedure room to offer the best care to our patients outside of a hospital setting. Speak to our friendly reception team on (07) 3882 3244 to book an appointment.
