Australia’s UV rates are among the highest in the world, and every bit of UV damage all adds up. Even in winter, UVA rays are high enough to cause aging and skin cancer. Even incidental sun exposure can increase your melanoma risk, which is why it’s crucial to have your skin and moles thoroughly checked, early and often.
There’s a skin cancer detection service to suit every body and budget at our 50+ clinics across Australia.

What is melanoma and how do you detect it?
Melanoma comes in many shapes and sizes. While most fit the standard ABCD criteria, other melanoma are a little more cunning, but because you know your skin, you may notice something. The problem is, that whilst people may notice a worrying mole during a mole check, many delay bringing it to the attention of their doctor. In fact, studies suggest that it can take upwards of 12 months for some people (particularly males) to seek medical attention about worrisome moles – and for some people that might be too long.
In addition to the ABCD, if you notice any moles during a self mole check that fit the general “E” for Evolution criteria of:
You should immediately bring them to the attention of MoleMap Brighton, or your doctor.
As we age, skin cancer checks are more important
Any of us who are in our 30s or older probably have fond memories of idyllic summers spent out in the sun all day, with barely a thought for sunscreen or covering up. Unfortunately, back in those pre ‘sun smart’ days, the damage to your skin may already have been done – and you might be seeing the consequences now as you age. That is why a regular mole check is so crucial.
