Skin Cancer Clinic

Australia and New Zealand have the highest rate of skin cancer in the world. Skin cancer is one of the most common preventable cause of cancer in Australia. Burwood Health Care has a specialised skin cancer clinic that are run by doctors that have special post graduate qualifications.

How do I check to see if I have skin cancer?

Here is a simple guide to help you recognise the early signs of cancer.

SCAN you skin. Look for a spot or a mole that is:

  • SORE – Scaly, itchy, bleeding, tender and doesn’t heal within 6 weeks

  • CHANGING – Changing in size, shape, colour or texture

  • ABNORMAL – Looks different, feels different, or stands out when compared to your other spots and moles.

  • NEW – Has appeared on your skin recently. Any new moles or spots should be checked, especially if you are over 40.

The more of the above features a spot or mole has, the more concerning it may be. Get it checked by a doctor.

For any services requiring a skin cancer check, either book online or ring Burwood HealthCare on  03 9888 8177

In order to keep you, your family, the community and our staff & Doctors as safe as possible during this uncertain time, we are requesting that you book a TELEPHONE or TELEHEALTH consultation with your doctor. Following this initial consult, your doctor will advise you on whether you need a face-to-face visit to the practice. You can be reassured that we are putting great measures in place to ensure you are as safe as possible when visiting our practice.


We will review this on a week to week basis and this information may change in the future without notice. Thank you so much for your cooperation and understanding.
