Queenslanders have some of the highest rates of melanoma and other types of skin cancer in the world. Places like the backs of your hands, your face, ears and your neck all receive sun exposure, even when we are not sunbathing! Melanoma can even occur without sun exposure, so it is best to be safe and ensure you have your moles and skin checked for skin cancer.
At Skin Medical Clinic in Tewantin on Queensland's Sunshine Coast, we have the expertise of Dr James Bricknell, a skin cancer doctor accredited by the Skin Cancer College of Australasia. Dr Bricknell has been in medical practice as a GP for over 30 years, and has also received extensive additional training in the diagnosis and removal of skin cancers.
