What is skin cancer?
Skin cancer occurs when skin cells are damaged, for example, by overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun.
There are three main types of skin cancer:
Both basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma are known as non-melanoma skin cancer or keratinocyte cancers. Keratinocyte cancer is more common in men, with almost double the incidence compared to women.
Melanoma is the third most common cancer in Australians (excluding keratinocyte cancers as data on incidence is not routinely collected). In 2015, 13,694 Australians were diagnosed with melanoma.
Every year, in Australia:
- Skin cancers account for around 80% of all newly diagnosed cancers
- The majority of skin cancers are caused by exposure to the sun
- The incidence of skin cancer is one of the highest in the world, two to three times the rates in Canada, the US and the UK.

During your skin check, your GP needs direct visualisation of the skin. Please do not wear makeup on the day or remove it before your appointment. You can leave your underwear on but will need to remove outer layers of clothing. You may request a nurse chaperone, this means a nurse is present in the room during your skin check. Please contact Reception to request this when you book your appointment as we will need to ensure a nurse is available at the time of your appointment.
During your skin check, your GP will inspect your skin from head to toe, looking closely for any suspicious or abnormal moles, freckles or lesions. Please tell the GP if there are any spots or freckles on your skin that you are concerned about.
Skin Doctors and Dermatologists differ in cost, facilities and access. Most GP’s and skin cancer clinics do not require a referral to access their services. GP fees tend to be lower than dermatologists. Dermatologists may have more specialised equipment and Skin Cancer Doctors will usually refer you to see a dermatologist or other specialist if needed.
