With many thousands of new cases diagnosed annually, Skin Cancer, including malignant melanoma (malignant mole), is the most common form of cancer in Australia. Although Skin Cancer is extremely prevalent, there is good news! Skin Cancer is not usually lethal and has a high recovery rate, when diagnosed early and accurately.
The early changes of skin cancers are often subtle, with accurate diagnosis requiring years of experience examining skin lesions.
