Skin Cancer Gold Coast Checks

Living in a country like Australia, with more than ample sun and a harsh climate augments the risk of skin cancer.  It is prudent to get a skin cancer check in the Gold Coast regularly.

Skin Cancer – How it is detected. Doctors use a variety of methods when checking for a skin cancer- below are two of the methods that can be used by a doctor.

The ABCDE Procedure

It occurs in the form of dysplastic nevi, also called the atypical mole. Identify this kind of mole by doing a check on the following:

  • Asymmetry(A): The analysis is positive when the mole’s two halves fail to match
  • Border(B): Edges appear uneven, scalloped and notched
  • Colour (C): The shade changes from black, tan and brown to a red, blue and also white
  • Evolving(E): If the mole begins to change its shape, colour, and elevation

The Ugly Duckling Procedure

It works under the assumption that moles present in an individual human body are similar. It means that a slightly different one may signify skin cancer.

During the skin check with one of the skin check doctors in Gold Coast near Tweed Heads, they can assist you with a spot check, or even a full skin check. Schedule a visit with us for a bulk bill skin check in Gold Coast.
