Have you had a skin check lately?

Did you know Queensland has the highest incidence of melanoma in the world?
Our Sunshine Coast lifestyle is amazing, but it also makes us vulnerable to skin cancer, which is why it’s so important to be vigilant with sun protection and early detection.

When it comes to skin cancer, early detection and treatment is your best defence, so why not come in for an expert skin check today?

Dr Thanu Shekar and Dr Cass Wys both have extra training and experience in sun cancer detection and they offer a comprehensive, head-to-toe skin check service.

These expert skin checks usually only take twenty minutes* and by the time you receive your medicare rebate, you’ll generally only be out-of-pocket $40.40 (or $20.40 if you hold a current concession card).

* If you need to discuss other issues with your doctor (aside from a skin check), please book a longer appointment. Some people (e.g. heavily tattooed people) require a longer consult to perform a thorough skin check and this may cost more. Your doctor will advise if this is the case. Please do not wear nail‑polish or makeup to your skin check appointment. 

A skin check by a doctor could save your life, so why not make an appointment today?
