General Practitioner (GP)
A GP can perform a skin check and examine any lesions of concern. They are familiar with your history, can talk to you about risk factors and family history, and treat some skin cancers. They might also refer you to a dermatologist, if needed.
Skin Cancer Clinics
There are many skin cancer clinics across Australia. Skin cancer clinics are usually operated by GPs with a focus on skin cancer. Many clinics offer the latest technology for examining skin spots.

For people at high risk of melanoma, or for specialist advice, a referral to see a dermatologist may be recommended. Dermatologists are doctors who have completed additional training to specialise in diagnosing and treating skin disease, including skin cancers. To see a dermatologist, you will need a referral from a GP or a skin cancer clinic.
