Young Adults - Skin Cancer Risks
Young Australian Adults are not exempt to serious skin cancers. Melanoma is the most common cancer diagnosed in young Australians aged 15 - 29 years, accounting for 15% of all cancers in this age group.*
Like all health checks, skin checks form an important part of making good lifestyle choices. If you have a family history of melanoma or feel you are at risk, please contact your Australian Skin Cancer Clinic to make an appointment.

Winter Skin Checks - Males
Skin Cancers do not hibernate during the winter months. Covering up in winter puts our skin checks into the “out of sight – out of mind” category. Having skin checks could save your life.
Winter is an ideal time for a skin check as during the cooler months we cover our skin and remain indoors leading to less traumatised skin, this makes it easier for you and your doctor to spot new or changing lesions.
By booking your appointment in Winter you can head into summer confident your skin checks are up to date.
