Welcome to Spot Check Clinic. We look forward to meeting you. In the meantime, here's some information so you know what to expect, how to prepare, and what information we need from you before your visit.
Skin cancer clinic
If you're coming to have a spot of concern examined, or your whole body checked for skin cancer:
What type of appointment?
If you've never had your skin or a mole checked previously, it can be hard to decide what type of appointment to book. In most cases, we recommend a full body skin cancer check-up, but in some cases this isn't the ideal appointment type.
Prepare for your skin check
If you're properly prepared, your skin check will go better. It's easier to examine and photograph your skin, and your doctor will have important information to more accurately assess your skin and plan future management and skin checks.
We ask you to complete a registration and medical history form before your visit. This gives us important background information so we can plan your visit and any treatments you may require. Completing the form in advance also means less time spent in the waiting room and helping us run on time.
We use the MoleScope/DermEngine system to store and share information: photos of your spots, mole mapping photos, pathology results, information about conditions we've diagnosed and treatments we've recommended. You will have access to all this information, and you can even add your own photos if you wish.
