Skin Cancer and Mole Checks
During your 30-minute appointment, your Skin Cancer Doctor will undertake a full-body skin examination, check moles and suspicious skin lesions, then photographed using our FotoFinder Digital Dermoscopy system. Your Doctor will then provide their professional assessment.
At Bluff Road Medical, we provide a comprehensive skin cancer screening and management service. Skin Cancer Doctors are experts at identifying suspicious moles and lesions, and we also offer state-of-the-art digital imaging of your skin. We assess all forms of sun damage, including skin cancers such as melanoma, basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and solar keratosis.
Choose An In-Person Mole Check
Other services offer ways of having your mole checked without leaving home. While technology and Artificial Intelligence are developing, we cannot rely upon images alone. Often the firmness, elevation, or growth of a mole may indicate a skin cancer such as melanoma. An experienced Skin Cancer Doctor can best assess this and detect possible cancers through a physical examination.
Why choose Bluff Road Medical Centre for your skin check-up?
We have Skin Cancer Doctors accredited by the Skin Cancer College Australasia. The imaging we provide is not routine, and is usually undertaken at skin cancer clinics. At Bluff Road Medical, we offer GP services and skin check-ups all conveniently under the one roof!
Our Sandringham skin doctors have undertaken advanced study to specialise in this area. We see high volumes of skin cancer, so we know what to look out for when it comes to identifying suspicious lesions and moles. What’s more, you won’t have to wait months to see us for your skin check.
Biopsies and surgery
If your doctor is concerned about a particular mole or lesion, they may suggest a biopsy to determine whether it is cancerous. This can be performed on-site at our clinic. We will take a small sample of the mole, then send it away for testing. For more details about accessing test results, please click here.
If the mole or lesion is malignant, our doctors can remove it on-site via surgery. We can remove most types of skin cancer or moles at our Sandringham medical clinic. Your doctor can explain the cost, results processing time and anticipated downtime (if any) to you during your appointment.
Dr Nicholas Kokotis, Dr Kachig Malyan, Dr Krish Dinesh, Dr Joan San, Dr Mary Fonti, Dr Jason Lam and Dr Sara Tarafi have conducted thousands of skin examinations between them.

– Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC)

The most dangerous of these types is Melanoma, although all of these forms can be successfully treated if captured and detected early.
We recommend having a skin check-up once a year. If you are concerned about a mole or lesion that has changed in appearance, please make an appointment to see us immediately. Similarly, if someone in your family has been diagnosed with skin cancer, it may be a good idea for you to schedule a skin check-up.
During your 30-minute appointment, your skin cancer doctor will undertake a detailed, full-body skin examination. Moles and suspicious skin lesions will be checked, then photographed using our FotoFinder Digital Dermoscopy system. These images can be used for future reference at follow-up visits to monitor any changes. This technology is designed for early skin cancer detection, and is strongly advised for high-risk patients with a personal or family history of skin cancer.
Patients are asked not to wear makeup or face creams to this consultation.
- Slip on protective clothing to cover your skin,
- Slop on some sunscreen that protects your skin from UV light,
- Slap on a hat to shade your face from UV sunlight
In addition to the above, the Skin Cancer Council recommends seeking shade, avoiding tanning salons and seeking a regular skin cancer checkup from your Doctor.
