Skin Cancer Management including Biopsies and Excisions
Myall Medical Practice provides a comprehensive skin cancer diagnosis and treatment service.
The Principal GP’s have undertaken additional training and are experienced in using Dermoscopy to diagnose Melanoma and Non-Melanoma skin cancer. The Dermascope is an instrument that provides a magnified view of the skin using a polarising light source.
Our Doctors perform excision (surgical removel) of skin lesions or biopsy (sample excision) where there is uncertainty. These procedures are performed during booked excision clinic sessions. The surgical wound is usually sutured by a simple stitching technique however we also perform more complicated wound closures using skin flaps and skin grafting techniques. All lesions are photographed prior to excising and all excised specimens are sent for histological diagnosis (Pathology).
The GP’s providing the service all participate in a surgical audit process through the Pathology provider.
Full skin checks are recommended for patients with a past history of skin cancer, older patients and anyone with a history of prolonged sun exposure over their lifetime, particularly fair-skinned patients.
Our professional healthcare team are experienced in conducting a number of minor procedures and are carried out in an environment where quality and infection control are of utmost importance.
The following is a list of some minor procedures carried out in our Practice:
Diathermy; treatment of fractures; intravenous injections; bleeds, removal of foreign bodies; nail ablation; immunisations; sutures and removal of; cryotherapy; insertion and removal of implanon and Mirena devices.
If you have a chronic medical condition, your Doctor may suggest a GP Management Plan. If you require treatment from two or more health profressionals (allied health), your Doctor may also put a Team Care Arrangement in place for you.
What is a GP Management Plan?
A GP Management Plan is a plan of action agreed between you and your GP. It identifies your health care needs, sets out the services to be provided by your GP and lists the actions that you need to take.
What is a Team Care Arrangement?
A Team Care Arrangement plan lets your Doctor work with, and refer you to, at least two other health professionals who will provide treatment or services to you.
You may be eligible for Medicare Benefits for specific allied health services if your Doctor prepares both types of plans for you.
Eligibility for a Chronic Disease Management Plan:
Anyone with a chronic or terminal medical condition can have a GP Management Plan in place. Please speak to your Doctor at your next visit.

Q Fever is an acute illness with fever, chills and muscle pains similar to severe influenza. The micro-organism responsible for Q Fever is carried by cattle, sheep and goats (particularly feral or wild goats) and is transmitted by contact with animal faeces, urine, blood and pregnancy fluids or by inhaling dust form infected premises.
Those most at risk of contracting the disease are abattoir workers and those closely associated with the meat industry, sheep shearers and farmers or any worker considered to be in a high risk environment.
Immunisation program is as follows:
Two visits are required, one week apart. At the first Visit (Q F11) a skin test for Q Fever (QFST) is conducted by injecting a small dose of diluted vaccine under the skin. Each employee is given a questionnaire on arrival to complete regarding their Q Fever history, allergies and medications. They will then be given a Pathology form and sent to Sullivan and Nicolaides to have bloods taken and tested for Q Fever antibodies this is to check if you are already immune to Q Fever.
The skin test is read seven days later at the 2nd Visit (QF12) and blood test results delivered. Interpretation of these results indicate if the vaccine is given or not. Dr Lynch will administer the Q Fever injection (QFV1) if required and the patient will be issued with a vaccination record. One vaccine only is given, you must not be given Q-Vax vaccine more than once, a booster dose of Q-Vax should not be given, a second dose may cause a severe reaction.
