    General Information:

    Queensland has the highest rate of skin cancer in the world. Two in three Australians will develop skin cancer in their life. The good news is it can be prevented. Most skin cancers can be treated if they are detected early.

    It is recommended that you have a professional skin check every 12 months.

    Steps you can take to prevent skin cancer are:

    • Slip on clothes with sleeves and a collar
    • Slop on broad-spectrum, water resistant 30+ sunscreen 20 minutes before going into the sun
    • Slap on a broad brimmed hat
    • Seek shade when you are outdoors
    • Slide on sunglasses that meet the Australian standard

    * Dr Javadi charges a small fee for skin checks performed on non-concession card holders aged 50 years and under. Any subsequent procedures performed, eg: biopsies and excisions are completely “bulk-billed”.
