Hats off to the University of Heidelberg

16 Questions… A Lifesaver?

QIMR Berghofer has released an online test that helps to identify whether you are at a high risk of developing melanoma within the next 3 and a half years.A quiz may not take the place of regular skin check-ups, but it can help you find out how at risk you really are.

And with melanoma that extra time may be critical.

Services that go around the medical community should be closely scrutinised by the regulatory authorities to ensure adequate evidence exists.

Why is melanoma so dangerous?

It's All About Depth. At Skin Analytics we put all our energy into catching melanoma early. But why? Because if a melanoma grow just a fraction of a millimetre too deep, its much harder to stop. Before we talk about why that is, lets get into some biology. Melanoma is...
