Skin cancer

January 19, 2020

In Australia sun exposure is a major risk factor for skin cancer.  Summer is here and the ultraviolet light is where our cells can be damaged by the harmful radiation.

Surfcoast massage has been able to assist clients by detecting skin cancers and abnormal growths.  You can’t always see or know what to feel for but a health practitioner can help. Massage is all about feel and touch and this is where skin cancers and growths can be detected. Surfcoast massage can advise you if anything looks unusual or changed in colour then refer you on to a general practitioner.  Then MRI’S, CT scans, ultrasounds and biopsies can then give a better diagnosis.

Skin cancers can be anywhere on the body and in places that we just can’t see ourselves and this is where massage can detect changes in the early stages. Most skin cancers can be managed with treatment that does not have long term effects.

When you book your next massage with Surfcoast Massage speak to Lisa about some of the modalities available remedial massage, sports massage, craniosacral therapy and lymphatic drainage are just some of the treatments available.
