SkinCheck is based on the Australian model of an easily accessible, affordable and convenient way of having your moles looked at in the community without the need for a GP referral. Dr Steve Karagiannis is an Australian Skin Cancer Doctor as well as a GP and has had extensive training in early skin cancer detection. He is happy to see Adults and Children who are concerned about suspicious skin lesions. He examines each mole using a Dermatoscope which is the gold standard used to detect early signs melanoma. If something suspicious is detected, a photograph is taken using the MoleMate Skin Imaging Camera and shown to the patient. Dr Steve will excise the lesion himself on the same day if time permits and send it to the hospital for pathological analysis; otherwise it is excised in the following few days. Often people have skin lesions that can only be described as ‘somewhat suspicious’. These lesions are photographed and the patient is asked to return in 3-6 months for a comparison photograph to assess for any changes ie. ‘mole mapping’. If changes are noted then the lesion is excised.
