Queensland has the highest skin cancer rates. Do not forget your Skin Checks Clinic Service!

Queensland has one of the highest skin cancer rates in the world. If early detection is carried out, most dangerous moles and spots can be removed which significantly reduces your risk of developing skin cancer. If you’ve noticed a change in a mole or spot, don’t risk your health. Get your skin checked by one of our specially trained doctors for skin checks.

Introduction to Skin Checks Clinic

For a look or diagnosis of skin lesions, you have been referred to the Rapid Access Skin Assessment Clinic. A skin lesion is an irregular development or appearance of the skin surrounding it compared with it. We want the diagnosis of skin cancer to be confirmed or removed.
