Cancer check vital to health
THE Condamine Medical Centre offers a full skin cancer service, with their Warwick-based doctors removing more than 1000 skin cancers each year.
A full body check does require extra time and it is a good idea to notify the receptionist, at the time of making the appointment, if you require this service.
Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world and centre staff urge anyone who notices anything on their skin that changes in size, shape or colour, itches or is new, to contact their GP.
Doctors at the Condamine Medical Centre have undertaken additional training in the diagnosis and treatment of skin cancer and are able to provide comprehensive skin examinations.
A number of doctors at the Condamine Medical Centre have also undertaken advanced skin surgery training to enable the centre to offer a complete range of treatment options.
The centre has recently expanded its medical facilities to include three on-site operating theatres and new imaging technology (DERMDOC), which assists in the early diagnosis of skin cancer.
Patients are encouraged to make an appointment for a skin check using DERMDOC.
Remember it's never too late to save your skin.
