It's a scary statistic.
At Mole Patrol, we've set out to do something about it. Mole Patrol formed in March 2018 with a primary goal to save lives by making skin cancer-related health care affordable and accessible for everyone.
With accessibility and affordability in mind, we made a conscious decision to bulk bill many of our services - so you will have no out of pocket expenses.
You see, here at Mole Patrol, we believe that by offering bulk bill skin checks, biopsies and skin cancer excision, skin cancer health care will be more accessible and undertaken more frequently. Regular skin checks allow us to educate people on prevention and to increase early detection of skin cancer. Both of these measures will save lives.
Ninety-five percent of skin cancers can be treated successfully if found early.
The Mole Patrol founders have worked hard to bring together experienced and respected plastic surgeons, doctors and medical practitioners with significant experience in the skin cancer field. Just because the service is bulk billed, doesn't mean you will get less experienced doctors or inferior treatment. Mole Patrol has GPs with more than 20 years’ experience in skin cancer and supported by well-established Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons in Perth. You can rest assured that at Mole Patrol, you will be in good hands.
Mole Patrol's flagship Bibra Lake clinic can provide all the skin cancer and skin check services you need under one roof. Rather than going to a GP and being referred into the public health system, which could see you waiting for months, you can come to Mole Patrol to receive the services you need in the one clinic without joining a waitlist.
Our mission at Mole Patrol is to deliver accessible, convenient and affordable skin cancer treatment and checks to West Australians. And, to achieve our mission, our vision is to open skin cancer clinics across the Perth metropolitan area.
All skin checks, biopsies and skin cancer
treatments are bulk billed. Fees and Charges will apply for Skin Cancer excisions.
