“At my annual full body skin exam, the melanographer found a small pin-sized spot on my ear and recommended I have it examined further. It turned out to be cancerous. If it wasn’t for MoleMap, it would have gone unnoticed.”

Your questions, answered

How does sunburn increase your risk of skin cancer?

Excessive UV exposure damages the skin’s cells and causes inflammation. Cellular damage can stop the cells from repairing properly. It can also cause the cells to mutate and become cancerous. We know that sunburn is a leading cause in the majority of cases of basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma. Protecting your skin against UV damage is one of the best ways to reduce your risk of skin cancer.

How long does a skin check take at Townsville skin cancer clinic?

The length of appointment will depend on the skin check service you select. 

How should I prepare for my Townsville mole check?

Before attending your appointment at Townsville skin cancer clinic, we recommend checking your skin and noting any spots of concern. At your skin check you’ll need to undress. It’s best to wear clothing and underwear that can easily be removed for a thorough skin check. Please don’t wear make-up free and avoid using self-tan or nail polish prior to your mole check. Don’t worry, our friendly melanographers will ensure you feel completely comfortable throughout your appointment.

What are the signs of melanoma?

The ABCDE + EFG rule is a useful way to help recognise the early warning signs of melanoma.

  • Asymmetrical in shape
  • Borders are irregular 
  • Colours are uneven or unusual
  • Diameter is growing
  • Evolving shape
  • + Elevated 
  • Firm to touch
  • Growth is rapid

Melanoma can present differently to oth­er skin cancers. A reg­u­lar skin check at Townsville MoleMap can help detect changes early. We also recommend doing at-home skin checks (ideally every 3 months). If you notice a change or an unusual mole, seek advice immediately.
