Skin Cancer Clinic



Our skin cancer clinic is a specialised clinic staffed by highly trained skin cancer doctors and nurses, and fitted with the latest technology to assist diagnosis and treatment.

More than 3,600 people are diagnosed with melanoma in Queensland each year. Unfortunately our skin cancer rates are the highest in Australia, and along with New Zealand, are the highest rates in the world.

Prevention is vitally important - and so is regular surveillance and early detection and treatment.

When did you last have a skin cancer check?

Hope Island skin cancer and medical aesthetic clinic

Ask your doctor about your own level of risk and for advice on early detection. Get into a routine of checking your skin for new spots and changes to existing freckles or moles.

We cannot afford to forget sun protection– its never too late to prevent further damage.
