Skin cancer is among the most prevalent cancers in Australia, and certain types of skin cancer can even be fatal. Finding out that you or your loved ones have been diagnosed with this condition can be really alarming. At Advantage Medical and Dental, we have a team of proficient and experienced GP’s offer holistic skin cancer care across Victoria suburbs of Hastings, Mt Eliza, Rosebud and Tooradin. Applying their extensive clinical knowledge with the help of latest technology, we are able to offer customized skincare treatment plans to care for the medical needs of every patient that we treat.

Skin Cancer Diagnosis

At Advantage Medical and Dental, our General Practitioners have adopted a three-stage pre-diagnosis approach when it comes to skin cancer:

  • We conduct a complete skin examination to decide whether your skin changes should be claimed as skin cancer. This entails a detailed analysis with the help of more tests to determine the diagnosis.
  • A skin biopsy with removal of the suspicious-looking skin could be taken for lab testing. It not only determines the presence of skin cancer but also informs us about the type of cancer if its present.
  • Once the diagnosis is confirmed, our doctors shall help you understand the skin cancer care plans with the available treatment structure.

Skin Cancer Treatment

Non-Melanoma Skin Cancers

If you have been diagnosed with non-melanoma skin cancer which is majorly found in individuals, our experts shall design a personalised treatment plan that includes:

Cryotherapy

This treatment is done by applying liquid nitrogen to the infected skin with a spray device. This leads to the freezing of the tissue without needing to get it cut. One can experience blistering for a small duration of time and this can also lead to permanent discoloration which can make your skin look white.

Scraping and Burning

This technique is used on small wounds on the body but not on the face. With the help of local anaesthesia, the skin is slowly scraped off and the tumour site is burned with a tiny needle.

Standard Excision

Standard Excision refers to the removing of skin cancer along with some of the healthy skin tissue around it (margin). This technique is used with the help of a local anaesthesia. On removing the cancerous area, the incision is closed with stitches.

Melanoma Skin Cancer

On getting diagnosed with melanoma cancer, we shall understand the depth and the progress of melanoma by thoroughly studying it. Our team shall recommend skin cancer care for this particular type which involves a referral to specialists.

Our skin cancer care is available at all the suburbs of Hastings, Mt Eliza, Rosebud and Tooradin. We pride ourselves on our professionalism and the quality of skin cancer care that we offer to our patients.
