Wanaka Skin Cancer Clinic

At Wanaka Skin Cancer clinic we offer a 30 minute, comprehensive skin check with a GP specialising in skin cancer management.

Your skin will be checked for moles, blemishes and changes that may be potentially cancerous. Liquid nitrogen and biopsies will be available in the appointment, if necessary. Areas of concern will be photographed and recorded so your skin can be monitored over time.

Skin cancer is the most common cancer in New Zealand and New Zealand skin cancer rates are amongst the highest in the world. If you have grown up in New Zealand, if you have fair skin, blond or ginger hair, have ever been sunburnt, enjoy being in the outdoors or work outdoors then you should have a regular skin check.

Early detection gives the best chance of successfully treating skin cancer. Melanoma is the skin cancer which is aggressive and can be deadly. Skin cancers can start as a mole or skin change so any new or changing skin spots need to be checked. If the doctor finds something that needs to be removed an excision will be arranged.

Remember to stay safe in the sun. Cover up, wear a hat, use a sun screen and sun glasses. Protect yourself and your children against the damaging effects of our New Zealand sun.

Be Safe: Be SunSmart.

The Skin Cancer Clinic is run by Dr Mark Feeney, Dr Julian Pettit, Dr Andrew McLeod and Dr Michele Wills.

Phone reception on 03 443 0710 or email office@wanakamedical.co.nz to book an appointment.
