What we do

Screening

Our Cancer Skin Screening program is one of the key objects of the Lions Cancer Institute by providing free Skin Screening Checks in Rural and Remote areas of the State where ready access to Skin Checks is not always available.

This free service is only made possible by the generosity of the institutes Screening Team. In providing this service. A panel of volunteer Dermatologists, Plastic Surgeons, GPs, Dermoscopists, Administrators and Drivers have voluntarily given over 2200 hours of their time. This work has been shared by the 16 Volunteers on the Screening Panel and the 15 Volunteers on the Driver and Administration panel.
