Skin Checks

Under our harsh climate, skin cancer is one of the leading health issues and causes of death for Australians.  2 out of 3 Australians will develop skin cancer in their lifetime and more than 1,300 people die of melanoma each year. We have one of the highest incidences of skin cancer in the world and that is why it is so important that we look after our skin and proactively look to catch skin cancers early.

Expert eye to diagnose

What you see yourself might not always give you the full picture. Quite often we see patients who attend for review of a concerning spot that turns out to be harmless, and incidentally, we find other skin spots that require further attention.

That’s why it is important to have your skin checked regularly so that any skin cancers can be identified and treated as soon as possible.

Trusted GPs use the latest technology

Our team of trusted GPs offer skin checks, examining moles and other skin blemishes for possible signs of skin cancer. We use the latest in technology to monitor changes in the appearance of moles, skin spots and blemishes, and can treat skin cancers and perform excisions.

Whether you only have a few spots that you are concerned about, or you want to routinely plan a full-body skin check, we are here to help. Daintree Health is fully equipped to conduct skin checks to keep you safe.

On this page, you will find the description and pricing of our services

Out of pocket cost means the cost to you after the Medicare rebate has been applied. The total cost that you pay upfront may vary due to the length of a consultation. However, no matter what the total cost will be, your Medicare rebate will always make up the difference to make your out of pocket cost the same, as seen below:

Full Body Skin Cancer Check

You will be seen by one of our specialised skin cancer doctors who will examine your skin from head to toe with a dermatoscope (specialised device that assists with thorough skin examination). The doctor will examine and photograph under high magnification every suspicious spot and advise you on any necessary action in regards to those. $120 out-of-pocket fee.

Full Body Skin Cancer Check and Mole Mapping

Full body mole mapping is performed after the full body skin cancer check, you may need a separate appointment. Mole mapping involves a series of 28 photographs covering your entire surface area of skin which are stored in our software for cross referencing with new and changing spots appearing on your skin in the future. Mole mapping is a tool that gives the doctors a point of reference for the identification and diagnosis of skin cancer. $170 out-of-pocket-fee.

Minor Biopsy

Usually includes punch and shave biopsy. However, in some cases those biopsies may fall into the standard biopsy category if they are large or located in difficult areas. $90-$120 out-of-pocket fee.

Standard /Excision Biopsy

Performed under local anesthetic and requires stitches. Size and complexity varies significantly. Therefore, the price range may vary accordingly but the out-of-pocket fee is normally the same. $160 - $240 out of pocket fee.

Cryotherapy

The procedure involves the use of extreme cold, usually liquid nitrogen to remove skin lesions such as warts, skin tags, harmless moles, blood spots, solar keratosis and sun spots. More than one treatment may be required. $30 out-of-pocket fee.
