Skin cancer is not uncommon in Australia. More than 11,500 Australians are diagnosed with melanoma each year and approximately 434,000 Australians are treated for other types of skin cancers each year. Queensland is the skin cancer capital of the world. The state’s skin cancer rates are noticeably high due to the tropical climate. Ultraviolet radiation levels are high enough every day, even on overcast days to burn our skin and damage skin cells. If skin cancer is detected early, it can often be successfully treated. It is very important to check your own skin regularly for noticeable changes and also get regular checks with a skin cancer specialist. If you are due for a skin check or have any concerns, please call Kangaroo Point Skin Clinic on 07 3391 8008 for a fully-covered Medicare (no-gap) consultation.
