Skin Cancer Clinic
There is a risk of developing skin cancer at any time during the year, not just during the summer months. That is why it is important to have regular mole checks with a doctor.
KRMC® uses the latest mole-scanning technology which, with regular checks, enables a doctor to build up an accurate picture of changes to the skin and to detect any suspect moles. Our doctors are able to perform excisions of any moles that appear to be of concern and to send them for analysis via our on-site Pathology department. To make an appointment at our Skin Cancer Clinic, please call Reception on 8822 3000.
