Hi all - does anyone have a recommendation for a really good skin cancer doctor in the NE suburbs of Melbourne (or east)? Strong family history of melanoma, and not that impressed with the current doctor (has failed to detect two melanomas).

Please PM with recommendations. Thanks!

What about a melanoma clinic?

Be careful of melanoma clinics.  You want to see a dermatologist.  Often melanoma clinics are staffed by general practitioners with an interest in sin cancer, or who have done some post graduate training in the area.

You can search for dermatologists in your area here:

I agree. Find a dermatologist.  Not a GP with an interest in skin cancer.

You need to see a dermatologist.

After I had an in situ Melanoma I was also recommended to have mole mapping done.

I agree with this. I see a dermatologist who does mole mapping. We caught one of mine through the mole mapping and he took it off immediately.
