Services

Skin Cancer Medicine

Cancer is a disease of the body's cells. Our bodies are made up of millions of cells which normally grow and are renewed in a controlled way, and we remain healthy. However, sometimes this control is lost. This may be due to an abnormality in the cells, such as a genetic mutation or exposure to a carcinogen (cancer causing agent) and the cells start to multiply unchecked instead of just renewing themselves. A solid group of these cells is called a tumour or growth. Junction Health have specialised services to cater for skin cancer treatments
