More than 14,000 Australians are predicted to be diagnosed with melanoma in Australia from 2017. Melanoma represents 2% of all skin cancers but causes 75% of all skin cancer deaths.
In Australia, 1 in 14 men and 1 in 24 women will be diagnosed with melanoma sometime in their life.
The good news is that if melanoma is identified at an early stage, simple treatment can result in a complete cure
PreventiHealth provides onsite Skin Checks at your workplace. They are easy and convenient. Please see below for some common questions about this service.
What does a Skin Check involve?
A Skin Check is a visual inspection of your skin by a trained practitioner. They use Dermatoscopes which are specifically made for looking at the skin. No blood work is conducted at the check.
Who will provide my Skin Check?
One of our highly trained Skin Cancer Screening Practitioners will conduct your Skin Check. They have all sustained qualifications with the Skin Cancer College Australia and are committed to detecting skin cancer in it's earliest, most treatable stage and reducing incidence of the disease by raising awareness of effective skin cancer prevention techniques.
How long will the Skin Check take?
The Skin Check will take approximately 15 minutes, this includes some skin cancer education tailored for each participant.
What areas of my body will be screened for skin cancer?
We recommend having your full body screened as skin cancer can occur anywhere on your body. However if you are less comfortable with a full body assessment we are happy to cater for individual requests.
