SKIN CANCER DETECTION AND MOLES

Our dedicated skin doctors have specialised training in skin cancer, and have earned Masters or Fellowship post-graduate degrees or diplomas in Dermatology and Skin Cancer Medicine. They possess advanced surgical skills and are able to perform complicated flaps and grafts should the need arise, using our purpose built theatre.
Skin Cancer detection saves lives. More than 2 out of every 3 Australians will be diagnosed with a skin cancer before the age of 70. Skin Cancers account for approximately 80% of all cancers diagnosed in Australia. Melanoma is the most diagnosed cancer each year for people aged 15-44 years of age (Data from Cancer Council of Victoria).
Full Body Skin Checks performed by our expert Skin Cancer doctors cost only $60 out of pocket, a small investment considering it may save your life. It is far better to detect skin cancer early, as this can avoid extensive and costly surgery at a later stage, which may or may not be curative. So your doctor will recommend annual full-body skin checks or even ones at a lesser interval for this reason.

All lesions of concern are scanned, macroscopically and microscopically, using Dermengine. This system further aids our doctors in making accurate diagnoses, and can prevent unnecessary surgery. You can personally see the microscopic images, discuss the troubling features, even download the images of your moles on your own phone or computer. If surgery is required the doctor will demonstrate the signs of cancer and discuss the options with you. If a wait and see approach is adopted then scans taken at a later stage can be compared on this software. This helps detect developing changes and can identify skin cancer in the early stages.

We recommend Full body Mapping if you have multiple moles or lesions (more than 25). Full Body Mapping performed at regular intervals can be very helpful in alerting your doctor to know which lesions are changing for the worse, and should be removed. Let us take the worry and concern out of your skin moles.

TYPES OF SKIN CANCER - SYMPTOMS AND PREVENTION

There are three common types of skin cancer, Melanoma, Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC) and Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC). If diagnosed and treated early a large majority of Melanoma, SCC ad BCC can be cured. It is important to get to know your skin and what is normal for you so changes will be quickly noticed.


Melanoma is the most serious form of skin cancer and may appear without warning. Melanoma can occur anywhere on the skin, even the soles of the feet. Melanoma can spread very quickly and once it penetrates below the surface of the skin it can be deadly. Early detection of Melanoma is therefor paramount in successfully treating the cancer.

Sunshine and light are good for us and we need it to produce Vitamin D. Vitamin D forms in the skin when it is exposed to UV radiation from sunlight. We need Vitamin D to maintain good health, in particular to keep our bones and muscles strong and healthy.

However too much sun can be DANGEROUS!! Overexposure to UV radiation permanently damages the DNA in our skin cells and this damage continues to worsen over time, causing the various skin cancers to form.

A melanoma changes its appearance quickly so how do we know when such changes have occurred? A major technological advancement in melanoma detection, the MoleMax© system is now available at Main Street Cosmetic & Skin and may help alleviate your concerns.

Also self skin checking is integral to monitor any potential changes in suspect spots.

Basal cell carcinoma is the most common form of skin cancer that develops in the basal skin cell. They are usually found in areas of your body that are frequently exposed to the sun. These flesh-coloured or pink scaly lesions can sometimes be mistaken for a dry patch of skin. Basal cell carcinoma can gradually grow over time, meaning you don’t have to take any urgent treatment.

However, delaying diagnosis and treatment, result in more extensive surgery later on, so we recommend you book an appointment sooner rather than later to avoid potential difficulties with future treatment. Although basal cell carcinoma never spreads to other body areas, it can affect surrounding structures, and require expensive flaps and grafts.

Squamous cell carcinoma is another type of non-melanoma skin cancer that can occasionally spread to other body areas over time. Such a form of skin cancer may look elevated and indented centre skin growth. Signs of squamous cell carcinoma include a rapidly growing scaly spot or a non-healing open sore, often developed on ears, lips, scalp, neck, or genitals. Early detection is crucial and recommended. Once diagnosed with SCC, semi-urgent treatment is required.

Melanoma is the most dangerous and life-threatening skin cancer form that requires immediate medical assistance. They are often developed from pigment-producing cells in the body called melanocytes. Melanoma can develop from an existing mole that has changed in size, colour, shape or appear as a new spot on once normal skin. They can appear almost anywhere in your body, including areas with no sun exposure. The potential risk of melanoma increases if you have a family history of melanoma, Fair and freckled skin type, or excessive exposure to sunlight which causes sunburn. Melanoma, however, can be treated if detected during the early stages.
