Skin cancer

Skin cancers are the most common cancer in New Zealand

with over 80,000 treated annually.   

What is skin cancer?

Skin cancer is overgrowth of specific cells in the skin. It may related to genetics and sunlight exposure over the years. New Zealand has the highest rates of melanoma globally, due to the high levels of UV light and active outdoor lifestyles.  Skin cancers are fully treatable when diagnosed early.

How we can help

In our clinic we carefully examine each skin lesion using a specialised device (dermatoscope) with polarised light and magnification. Cancerous  or pre-cancerous lesions can be identified and can be fully removed in a simple procedure.
