Do I need a skin check?

Our patients are people from all walks of life. Here are some of the factors that increase the risk of having a skin cancer:

  • A family member has had a skin cancer treated
  • You have been sunburnt in the past, particularly as a child
  • You have used a solarium in the past, particularly under the age of 30
  • You have a large number of moles on your body
  • You work outdoors or have done so in the past
  • You regularly pursue an outdoor sport such as cricket, golf, surfing, running, or swimming
  • You have had a skin cancer before
  • You have a very fair skin which burns easily

The Cancer Council reveals that more than 12,000 Australian men and women are diagnosed with a melanoma each year, as skin cancer accounts for over 80% of all new cancer cases in Australia. Early detection and regular screenings play a vital role in preventing and reducing the impact of skin cancer. Our experienced skin specialists have assisted patients throughout Sydney. No matter your age or the amount of time you spend outside in the sun, routine Skin Cancer Checks are a good idea.

What is involved with a skin check?

Like all good dermatologists and skin specialists in Australia, we use dermoscope to evaluate pigmented lesions in order to distinguish malignant skin lesions, such as melanoma and pigmented basal cell carcinoma, from benign melanocytic naevi and seborrhoeic keratoses. Skin cancer checks conducted by our specialised practitioners generally take 15 minutes. The doctor will then discuss the finding(s) with you and the possbile treatment(s). Why wait?

Bulk-Billed Procedures

Our clinic bulk-bills all necessary skin procedures, saving patients hundreds if not thousands of dollars in out of pocket costs. Cosmetic treatments do require payment as they are not covered by medicare.


PDT (Photodynamic Therapy) Treatment

What is PDT?

Photodynamic Therapy is used to treat solar damage (actinic keratosis) and some early skin cancers on the face and scalp. This treatment is an alternative to surgery or cryotherapy.

How does it Work?

PDT uses a chemical reaction activated by light energy from the sun. The treatment selectively targets lesions, sparing healthy tissue, meaning that side effects such as scarring are minimized.

Dr Rodney Marks has successfully used PDT Treatment to treat patients for many years. For more information or to find out if you are suitable for this treatment please book an appointment with Dr Marks.
