Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we are currently only able to operate limited skin cancer check clinics.
Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world, two to three times the rates in Canada, the US and the UK.
Anyone can be at risk of developing skin cancer, though the risk increases as you get older, if you have a personal or family history of skin cancer, or skin that burns easily.
It is important to check your skin regularly and check with your doctor if you notice any changes.
Our skin cancer check clinic operates on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons. The clinic is run by Dr Sajjad Muhammad, Dr Andrei Cheng and Dr Gaurav Singh.
Anyone who is concerned about suspicious looking moles/sunspots. You do not need to be a patient at Bendigo Primary Care Centre and you do not need a referral.
