Evidence shows that two out of three Australians will be diagnosed with skin cancer by the age of 70. We also know that early detection is one of the most important factors in achieving the best prognosis and this is best done with regular skin checks. Skin Cancer PLUS has taken over the premises of the long-standing Skin Cancer Only business in Roslyn Road and offers skin checks using the latest in digital surveillance technology. Our Skin Cancer PLUS GPs also offer skin cancer treatment options. Dr Rahdon attends the bi-weekly, multi-disciplinary meeting of Barwon South Western Regional Integrated Cancer Service (BSWRICS). This gives him the opportunity to discuss complex cases with a range of specialist surgeons and doctors and use their professional opinions to help formulate the best treatment plan to incorporate all aspects of care thus ensuring the highest possible level of service.
Skin Cancer PLUS is staffed by our two GPs, Dr Novreen Rasool and Dr Bianca Forrester who both have a special interest in skin cancer. They also have specialist back up from our Plastic and Reconstructive surgeons, Dr Richard Rahdon and Dr Fraser Gilmour who are able to assist with more complex surgical cases as required. Working alongside the doctors are practice nurse, Jacqui Power and registered nurse Megan James who both have many years of experience in GP practice nursing.
Skin Cancer PLUS is located at 66 Roslyn Road, Belmont and is home to our state-of-the-art FotoFinder skin mapping technology as well as operating facilities for the excision of skin cancers.
