Skin Cancer Surveillance

In the sunshine state we enjoy an enviable lifestyle and climate, with beach and outdoor activities an integral part of our daily lives. However it is well established that with this lifestyle comes the increased risk of skin cancer that is associated with the increase in daily sunlight exposure.

uvraditation110As part of a proactive health programme, and in addition to being "sun-smart" and reducing the risk for developing skin cancers, many Australians undertake a regular skin cancer check up by an experienced medical practitioner.

Dr McMaster has provided this service to his patients in New Zealand and Australia over the past 20 years. He has experience and training in skin cancer detection with a post graduate diploma of dermoscopy from the University of Graz, Austria. He has also worked for several years as a lecturer with theUniversity of Queensland establishing the UQ Masters in Skin Cancer degree for doctors. At the Grange Clinic we can provide your first contact for skin cancer surveillance, diagnosis and treatment, and will refer on to the appropriate surgery or dermatology colleagues should you require more specialised care. Digital dermoscopic photography for surveillance and monitoring of skin lesions is also utilised in circumstances where this is deemed to be the most appropriate management.
