Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world. Early detection is the key to managing skin cancers. Two in three Australians will be diagnosed with skin cancer by the age of 70.
Most of us know that protecting our skin from the sun is the most important step in preventing skin cancer. Despite this, most of us have been exposed to sun and have experienced some form of sun damage during our lives.
The Doctors at Craigmore Family Practice are able to perform regular skin checks to ensure any suspicious lesions are dealt with quickly. In addition, Dr Rizwan Latif performs biopsies and removals on site for quick diagnosis and treatment.
Our Doctors also perform other minor surgical procedures including
- Ingrown toenail resection;
- Wound suturing;
- Removals (cysts, moles) and cryotherapy.
Please note there maybe an out of pocket expense for some procedures.
Call us on 8255 1999 to make an appointment for a skin check or a minor surgical procedure.
