In our Skin Unit, our specialists work together to personalise your care. After receiving your diagnosis, we offer comprehensive care for every type of skin cancer. And we are constantly researching newer, safer, more effective ways to prevent, diagnose and treat skin cancer.

A biopsy of any suspicious lesion is the best way to discover if you have skin cancer. Small tissue samples are removed from the area by your doctor, who will then examine this sample to make a diagnosis and begin planning any treatment that you may need.

Your care at the CCC includes a treatment plan customised to your specific type of skin cancer.

Radiotherapy, chemotherapy and surgery are all available as treatment options, depending on what you and your doctor decide is the best course of action, based upon your diagnosis and disease stage.
