Find answers to your questions about our clinic and services

At Fremantle Skin Cancer Clinic, we understand that you may have questions about skin cancer, our services, or your appointments. We have compiled a list of frequently asked questions for your convenience. If you have further questions, please feel free to contact us.
We treat all types of skin cancer, including basal cell carcinoma (BCC), squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), and melanoma.
We recommend a professional skin check at least once a year. However, you may need to have skin checks more frequently if you have a history of skin cancer, a family history of skin cancer, or any new or changing skin lesions.
During a skin check, our dermatologists will thoroughly examine your entire body, looking for any suspicious skin changes or lesions. We may perform further diagnostic tests, like a biopsy, if a suspicious lesion is found.
Treatment options depend on the type and stage of skin cancer and your overall health. Options may include surgical removal, Mohs surgery, cryotherapy, radiation therapy, topical treatments, or systemic therapies for more advanced cases.
If you notice a new or changing mole, it’s important to seek medical advice as soon as possible. Changes in moles can be an early sign of melanoma. Please contact us to arrange an appointment.
Preventive measures include regularly applying broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher, wearing protective clothing, seeking shade during peak sun hours, avoiding tanning beds, and checking your skin for any changes.
Yes, we provide comprehensive aftercare following skin cancer treatment, including regular follow-up checks and advice on preventive measures.
Remember, these FAQs provide general information, but every patient’s situation is unique. Always consult with a healthcare provider for advice tailored to your specific circumstances.
