Molechecks Australia is committed to early detection, diagnosis and treatment of melanomas and other skin cancers. Partnering with Bedford Day Surgery, we have been leading the way since 1997.
Over 550 Melanomas Diagnosed
Full Skin Cancer Care beginning with skin assessment, then if required lesion removal and then further skin cancer management.
We have an outstanding melanoma diagnosis rate with over 550 melanomas diagnosed in recent years – most of them at a very early stage. Thousands of basal and squamous cell cancers (more common than melanoma) have also been diagnosed.
We assess all the moles and red lesions on your body and using image capture technology store images of those
Digital image capturing is the only accurate way to compare, review and identify mole changes. It allows us to detect subtle changes in a mole.
The review process has enabled diagnoses of melanomas that did not have obvious melanoma abnormal features on first saving but were detected on growth.
Computerised Dermoscopy with image capture allows changes to be detected within a fraction of a millimeter. Changes this small would otherwise go undetected.
For South Australian appointments:
On the day of your visit, our highly trained Doctors and Melanographers use the worlds most thorough skin cancer detection program using:
Whole Body Photography
About half of all melanomas emerge on plain skin. This can be detected if we have a photo record of the skin for future comparison, so we can spot new moles.
Dermoscopy is the technology that lets us look through the skin to its structures, allowing us to clearly diagnose moles.
You can see what is not possible to see with the naked eye.
Using dermoscopy the diagnosis rate for melanomas increases from 40-50% to over 90%.

Every Mole/Mark assessed
A dermoscope is used to assess every mole on the body. Not all early melanomas are visible to the naked eye. Some melanomas we have diagnosed have been as small as 1mm in diameter.
In most cases our patients were not aware of the melanoma on their body.
All moles with abnormal structures are saved.
Healthy moles do not change or change in predictable ways.
Melanomas change and rewrite their structure.
Serial monitoring enables early detection of melanomas.
