The downside of living in this sunburnt country is that skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in Australia. The good news is that skin cancer is readily treatable if caught early.
Dr Richard Newton developed a strong interest in skin cancer when working a remote GP on King Island, treating the farmers and fisherman who had spent their lives out in the open. Because of their isolation, they were keen to get treated by the local GP rather than having to miss time off work travelling to a city. This inspired Dr Richard to complete several more advanced training programs in skin cancer detection, management and surgery.
In Cottesloe, our team of doctors will openly discuss with you when your skin cancer can be treated safely in-house, and when a specialist referral might be necessary. At Azure, our team will make sure that the treatment you receive will be exactly appropriate for the condition. Unfortunately, we have found that some ‘Mole Clinics’ operate less ethically with a focus on recommending excision procedures that may not always be necessary.
As with all things health, you’ll feel happier having your skin cancer checks in Perth performed by your trusted team at Azure Health Cottesloe.
