Why is SkinCheck so popular?

Why is SkinCheck so popular?

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 and send it to the Mater hospital for pathological analysis otherwise you will be referred to a Plastic Surgeon. 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.

Please Note:

Dr Jude McEntire has now joined the team at SkinCheck. He has been working alongside Dr Steve for the past twelve months and has completed intense training in skin cancer medicine during this period. He will be covering the following dates when Dr Steve is on annual leave: July 14th, 21st, 28th.

Our doctors specialize and focus their training in skin cancer medicine. We do not deal with general dermatological issues such as rashes, eczema, psoriasis, acne.

There is no reception telephone service Wednesday afternoon and Saturday morning. Please email if you have a concern and somebody will get back to you.

We receive about 20-30 requests for Skin Checks per day so please allow 24-48 hours for a member of our staff to reply to your email.

We hope you stay safe
