Skin Checks 

Skin cancer is the most common cancer affecting New Zealanders.
Skin cancers are commonly put into two groups - melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer, with melanoma being the most dangerous.
See your doctor as soon as possible if you:


• see or feel something that's new on your skin
• see or feel something that’s different from other moles
• notice a mole that’s changed from the last time you checked - this could include a change in the colour, shape or size, or if it is bleeding or itchy.


Some skin cancers can spread very quickly, so noticing a change in your skin quickly (early detection) means that it's more likely to be treated successfully.
We offer full comprehensive skin checks for both enrolled and non-enrolled patients at a very reasonable rate. Please contact the Health Centre for an appointment or for more information.

Dr Graeme Scrivener runs a dedicated skin check clinic from time to time. Please contact the Health Centre to find out when these clinics are being held.
