Skin Search’s primary objective is the early detection of all skin cancers, particularly melanoma. The rapid growth and early spread of Melanoma reminds us of the need for early diagnosis and treatment.

A sophisticated hi-tech computerised photography system including dermoscopic (microscopic) imaging checks for the emergance of new lesions as well changes in existing spots, particularly moles, so suits those at higher risk such as those with Dysplastic Naevus Syndrome (DNS), who have many large and unusual looking moles. All images are assessed and reported on by a specialist dermatologist.

Remember – Australia has the highest incidence of skin cancer in the world. The incidence of Melanoma in Australia is increasing and currently accounts for the deaths of 1200 people each year, most of which are preventable.


Complete Skin Examination (CSE)

This service is appropriate for someone who is at low risk or who does not have any particular concerns regarding specific lesions or spots. 

Standard Excision (SSE)

Standard Surgical Excision (SSE) is the time honoured technique for excision of a wide range of benign and malignant skin tumors. An appropriate margin of normal skin surrounding the lesion to be excised is chosen and an elliptical or canoe shaped incision is made. The adjacent skin is then sutured together as a straight or curved line. The specimen is sent for pathological analysis with the result being known in 2 to 3 days.
