Skin Cancer Prevention Landsborough
As the well-known phrase goes, the best method to prevent skin cancer is to Slip, Slop and Slap;
- Slip on some sun-protective clothing that covers as much skin as possible.
- Slop on a broad spectrum, water-resistant SPF30 sunscreen (or higher). Put it on 20 minutes before you go outdoors and remember to apply it again every two hours after.
- Slap on a hat a broad brim hat is perfect to protect your face, head, neck and ears.
- Seek shade.
- Slide on some sunglasses make sure they meet Australian Standards.
Prevention is the best policy. Slip, slop, slap, seek and slide are your essential guidelines for protecting your skin. In addition to these, when you identify anything on your skin that worries you, a doctor’s check-up should be a priority.
Self-examination is important to monitor any new formations on your skin and if there are places you can’t see yourself, you can ask a family member or friend to help.
Medical examinations with a dermatascope allows doctors to track any changes of the skin.
Skin Cancer Detection, Diagnosis and Treatment
Minor surgical procedures can be performed in our Landsborough practice to remove suspicious formations, which are immediately sent to pathology laboratories to determine their nature and if they are cancerous or not.
If there are no cancerous cells, your doctor may look into other dermatological conditions that may be causing your symptoms.
If cancerous cells are found, pathology will also identify what type they are (Melanoma, Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC) or Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC)) your doctor will discuss your treatment plan.
