Lockyer Valley Skin Cancer Clinic
Welcome to Lockyer Valley Skin Cancer Clinic. Located in Gatton Queensland, Australia, our leading Skin Cancer Specialist and Doctor is Dr Usman Khan. He is backed by Nurses and Practice Managers that ensure the clinic runs smoothly. By the age of 70, 2 out of 3 Australians will be diagnosed with skin cancer. We are committed to providing excellence in Skin Cancer diagnosis and treatment and referrals. The skin is the largest organ of the body, but with the Australian sun, and years of being exposed to harmful UV light, we are a nation of people susceptible to skin cancer. Put yourself in the hands of trained, caring experts.
We provide high quality, personalised and individualised skin cancer services. We believe that early detection, prevention and management of skin cancers leads to lives being saved.
What to Expect
After booking an appointment with Lockyer Valley Skin Cancer Clinic, you will be provided with a short questionnaire to ascertain some of your risks. You can fill this out in the waiting area.
Wear clothing that is easy to remove and no make-up. A skin cancer assessment consult will include examination of lesions you are concerned about and a thorough head to toe skin check using special magnifying equipment. There is no pain. At least 15 min appointment is allowed for your appointment. The doctor will take relevant medical and skin cancer history and skin type assessment to determine your risk of skin cancer followed by a comprehensive head to toe skin check. Magnification, dermoscopy and digital photography is used where necessary to assist with the assessment.
If no suspicious lesions are found, an appropriate future recall system will be put into place depending on the assessment of your future risk and your doctor will discuss with you on future skin cancer prevention and awareness.
If suspicious lesions are detected, the doctor will discuss and recommend options for management of the suspicious lesions. This may include digital monitoring, biopsy, excision or non surgical managements.
Dr Usman Khan will undertake skin excisions onsite in a fully equipped minor ops treatment room. The doctors are able to do grafts or flaps where necessary to minimise skin tension or optimise cosmetic results.
You will be fully informed of all procedures, risks and if referrals are required.
