Your GP knows your full history, and can examine your skin and advise you regarding appropriate care. It is also a good idea to talk to your doctor about your level of risk for skin cancer and for advice on early detection.
If you would like a second opinion, ask your GP to refer you to a dermatologist or surgeon with an interest in skin cancer. Your GP may suggest you see a specialist anyway.
Cancer Council SA does not endorse or operate skin clinics. We suggest you see your own doctor as they have your medical history and can offer follow-up treatment. If you don’t have a regular doctor, make an appointment to see any doctor; they are trained to examine skin cancer.
If you are using a skin clinic, ask about the expertise of staff, range of services and fee arrangements they provide.
