SKIN CANCER

Skin cancers are very common in Australia. Often, simple skin cancers such as basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and squamous cell carcinomas (SCC) can be safely treated in the office setting. Others may require more complex surgical management including appropriate reconstruction after cancer removal.

BCC and SCC make up the most common skin cancers in Australia. A range of treatments exist for these lesions from topical treatments to surgery depending on the size, location and type of cancer. In general, the vast majority can be cured when detected and treated in a timely manner.
