Time for Skin CANCER and MELANOMA Check-up

Dear patients,

At Dural Family Medical Practice, some of our doctors have undertaken additional sub-specialisation training in skin cancer medicine and perform regular skin checks and skin cancer removals.

Skin checks are strongly recommended for all adults in Australia. Common risk factors for skin cancer include having multiple moles (naevi), having fair skin and hair colour, a history of past sun exposure (especially having grown up in Australia), and a family history of melanoma.
