Did you know that Australia has the highest skin cancer incidence rate in the world?
That’s why here at Bay Street Medical we aim to provide patients with caring, accessible and efficient service in the early detection, diagnosis and treatment of skin cancer and melanoma.
Skin cancer is diagnosed by a physical examination and biopsy, which can be done on the spot. It is a quick and simple procedure where part or all of the spot is removed and sent to a laboratory.
