Our Brisbane clinics offer whole body skins checks performed by a trained general practitioner, Dr Wendy Wong. If unusual or suspicious lesions are found, she can recommend the appropriate treatment options available to you.

South East Queensland has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world.

If you have ever suffered from severe or regular sunburn it is imperative you have skin checks to detect any changes to spots or moles.

Early diagnosis and treatment is the best way to reduce skin cancer rates in Queensland. Skin check screening involves a whole body skin examination to carefully examine the skin for any signs of unusual skin features that need further investigation. It is important to get your skin checked regularly.
