As normal moles and skin cancers look very similar to the average person, you can see our doctors to investigate further. We will discuss your level of risk based on your skin type and offer advice on early detection.
To test a lesion or mole, we may need to perform a punch or shave biopsy. This will help us to determine if we need to do an excision to remove it entirely. An excision is a minor surgical procedure that takes approximately 20 minutes (depending on the size of the mole).
For more information about skin cancer symptoms and causes, you can visit the Cancer Council
website. If you notice any changes in your skin, make an appointment
with our doctors to have it checked it out today.
