What is skin cancer?

There are 3 important types of skin cancer:
  • Basal Cell Carcinoma or BCC
  • Squamous Cell Carcinoma or SCC
  • Malignant Melanoma – the most serious
Understanding the differences between these and how to treat them effectively requires training and expertise.
Every change in a mole is an alarm signal, and they can often be in the most obscure hidden areas such as between your toes and within the hairline. If you notice any of the following changes, we recommend you book in to see one of our Skin Cancer Clinic doctors immediately:
  • Change in colour
  • Irregular edges
  • Changes in the surrounding skin e.g. reddening, itching or an odd sensation, scaliness, roughness, oozing, bleeding, or
  • A sore that doesn’t heal
  • A mole that bleeds
  • New moles (especially if occurring after 25 years of age)
Every year, in Australia:
  • skin cancers account for around 80% of all newly diagnosed cancers
  • the majority of skin cancers are caused by exposure to the sun
  • GPs have over 1 million patient consultations per year for skin cancer
  • the incidence of skin cancer is one of the highest in the world, two to three times the rates in Canada, the US and the UK. However, the death rate (number of deaths per 100,000 people) has fallen by 16%.
Approximately, two in three Australians will be diagnosed with skin cancer by the time they are 70. Non-melanoma skin cancer is more common in men, with almost double the incidence compared to women. Excluding non-melanoma skin cancer,* melanoma is the third most common cancer in Australians. In 2016, 1960 people died from skin cancer in Australia, 1281 from melanoma and 679 from non-melanoma skin cancers. More than 60% of people diagnosed with cancer in Australia will survive more than five years after diagnosis.

*Non-melanoma skin cancers are not notified to cancer registries.
