Melanoma New Zealand Spot Check Van
Come along to Melanoma New Zealand’s Spot Check Van at Fieldays for your free skin cancer spot check, and to receive information about staying safe in the sun and how to detect melanoma early.
New Zealand has the worst rate of melanoma in the world and it can be fatal. But most skin cancers are preventable, and if recognised and treated early enough, melanoma is almost always curable. The purpose-built van is a superb educational resource and critical in Melanoma New Zealand’s fight to save lives.
Please note the spot check will look at approximately 1-3 spots only, and is designed to raise general awareness about your skin and skin cancer. A full skin check and a diagnosis is not provided. Melanoma New Zealand recommends getting a regular full body skin check by your GP or a dermatologist, surgeon or plastic surgeon, rather than relying on spot checks alone.
