What and Why About Cancer – Cancer Awareness: Many people are suffering from cancer. Cancer is not a rare disease, but it is a terrible disease. That is why regular checkup is necessary.
The following list will educate you about cancer:
Why get a skin test?
Skin cancer is prevalent. It is estimated that by the age of 70, two out of every three Australians will be diagnosed with skin cancer. Early detection and treatment is important. Currently, there is no skin cancer screening program. If you are concerned that you are at increased risk of developing skin cancer, it is important to have regular skin cancer screenings with a skin cancer specialist or dermatologist.
What should one expect?
We want patients to walk away with peace of mind and assurance that they have been thoroughly evaluated by a skilled skin cancer specialist. We want to provide a service that is compassionate, accessible and effective for the early detection and treatment of skin cancer.
What is involved in skin cancer screening?
If you schedule a full-body skin exam, your appointment will include a consultation with the doctor, after which your skin will be examined using a hand-held device called a dermatoscope. Derm engine total body photography is now offered to aid in annual wart surveillance.
Alternatively, you can schedule a specific spot check if you are concerned about a specific location.
Sometimes, it is impossible to distinguish between skin cancer and non-cancerous lesions. In this scenario, we either collect images to monitor the lesion for future changes or perform a small biopsy to diagnose the lesion.

What imaging program do we use?
When examining the skin at Southgate Medical, we use the DermEngine imaging program.
DermEngine is an intelligent dermatology software powered by artificial intelligence that supports image monitoring, change detection and full-body photography.
Regardless of how often you visit your doctor, we recommend that you get your skin checked every three to six months.
To prevent skin cancer from developing in the first place, practicing sun protection is essential.
Transmission of disease is inevitable. However, with manufactured medical help, you can avoid the worst.
