Skin Cancer Checks

Most skin cancer can be successfully treated if it is found early. But without treatment, skin cancer can be deadly.

All Australians are encouraged to protect their skin from the damage caused by UV rays of the sun and to get to know your skin.  Check all of your skin, not just sun-exposed areas. If you notice anything unusual, including any change in shape, colour or size of a spot, or a new spot, visit your doctor as soon as possible.

Dr Denise Bullen has a special interest in skin cancer, and has a Diploma in Skin Cancer Medicine. Dr Bullen can provide head to toe skin checks and management options based on current best evidence guidelines. Skin checks are recommended every 6-12 months, depending on the individual’s risk factors. Please contact our friendly staff to book your Skin Check.
