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.
