Bupa is working with Flinders University to provide free skin checks at its southern Adelaide campuses from 23 to 27 November.
In addition to regular self-checks, a professional skin examination can help people get to know their skin and detect changes at the earliest stages. Skin cancer found early can usually be successfully treated.
At the skin checks, an experienced dermatoscopist will explain their findings and provide a results card. They will also discuss preventative measures that can help protect our skin, and provide tips on how to differentiate between a mole and the possible signs and symptoms of skin cancers.
The ten-minute checks will examine skin on the face, neck, upper chest, hands, forearms, elbows and any other areas of concern. Bookings are available at Bedford Park, Sturt, Tonsley and the Flinders Medical Centre.
