At MoleMedic your skin cancer check is with a Doctor who is fully qualified Doctor in Dermoscopy, and who is also accredited by the Skin Cancer College Australasia
You will see Dr Brian Wills, MB ChB, FRNZCGP, Aust Dip Dermoscopy. In addition to the post graduate Australian Diploma of Dermoscopy, Dr Wills has extensive experience in the diagnosis and treatment of skin cancers and melanoma. He also has expertise in skin surgery, including skin grafts and repairs using flaps. Dr Wills is a Member of the Skin Cancer College of Australasia
You are checked for all skin cancers such as basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma, not just melanoma. Any lesion that is in any way questionable will be checked using a dermatoscope.
Significant lesions or moles may be digitally recorded, imaged and mapped for future comparison. You will leave your appointment knowing the whether there is any further treatment needed, and when you should next be recalled for review.
During your appointment Dr Wills will discuss with you whether any further treatment or monitoring is required. Not all skin cancers need to be treated surgically. You can make an informed choice about follow up or treatment without delay. Following your scan, a report will be made available to your own GP.
Dr Wills has extensive experience and expertise in the removal of moles and other skin cancers. He will organise any excision that is required within a short time, or he can refer you back to your own GP if you prefer.
At the end of your appointment, Dr Wills will discuss with you when you should have a review.
You are checked for all skin cancers such as basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma, not just melanoma. Any lesion that is in any way questionable will be checked using a dermatoscope. Dermoscopy gives more certainty in making an accurate diagnosis of malignant melanoma and in advising whether an excision of the mole is necessary. Your significant and suspicious lesion/s or mole/s may then be digitally imaged and recorded for future clinical comparison.
A digital record of your suspicious mole/s and lesions is kept by MoleMedic for future clinical comparison when it is deemed necessary.
Digital imaging and recording of lesions may be at an additional cost. Please see these charges under Appointment Costs
At your consultation, Dr Wills will discuss with you when you should be seen again.
