‘My doctor told me it was a pimple, and asked me not to worry about it’. Joan pointed a pink spot on her nasal tip and said, ‘But it was bleeding last week. I am worrying about it now’. Joan is right. Her GP missed the BCC on her nose.
BCCs account for 2/3 of skin cancers in Australia. Nose is one of the common area BCC is found. When found late, more complicated procedures are needed and worse outcomes might be expected.
OZ Skin Cancer Clinics provide an integrated screening, detection, diagnosis and treatment of skin cancer. This is performed by doctors who specialise in managing skin cancer patients using specialised equipment not often available in a GP’s clinic. We can also treat your skin cancer, if detected, on-site without waiting for a referral to a dermatologist meaning a quicker treatment path for you.
Early detection is our goal!
