The Bathurst Street Skin Cancer Clinic is open at 71 Bathurst Street in Central Hobart. Skin cancer doctor, Dr Delfin Sansom, is passionate about offering quality and accessible care in Tasmania. Dr Sansom has years of experience in skin cancer medicine and is trained in the prevention, early detection and treatment of skin cancer. Dr Anand Pemmulu also has a special interest in skin cancer management and has taught general dermatology to GPs around the globe.


Bathurst Street Skin Cancer Clinic offers skin checks, skin spot reviews, non-surgical treatments and surgical treatments for skin cancer. 

The standard fee for a skin check is $175.00 and is the best value for a 30-minute skin check using specialist equipment.

At Bathurst Street Skin Cancer Clinic, clinicians screen patients using 'Fotofinder' technology. Fotofinder is the leading mole-mapping, dermoscopy and mole analysis technology, allowing comparison and follow-up of high quality images. This enables doctors to detect even the earliest changes in moles, assessing them for malignancy, and preventing unnecessary surgery.

Approximately two in three Australians will develop a skin cancer by age 70. In Australia, skin cancer accounts for around 80% of all newly diagnosed cancers.

The majority of skin cancers identified are basal cell carcinoma or squamous cell carcinoma – these skin cancers are referred to as non-melanoma skin cancers. Melanoma is less common than non-melanoma skin cancer, but is still a major issue in Australia. Australians have an approximately 1 in 18 lifetime risk of developing melanoma.

In Tasmania, melanoma is the third most common skin cancer in women and fourth most common cancer in men. We sadly lose 30-50 people in Tasmania each year to melanoma.

The majority of skin cancer is linked to cumulative sun exposure or sunburn episodes. In Tasmania our ultraviolet radiation level is often high or extreme. In Tasmania, it is not uncommon to have significant sun damage in early adult life.

All Tasmanian over 18 years should consider having a full skin check. Irrespective of age, any skin lesion that is obviously changing or has developed symptoms should be reviewed by a doctor.

If diagnosed and treated early, both non-melanoma skin cancer and melanoma skin cancer is nearly 100% curable. Depending on the type and stage of skin cancer many treatment options exist. Some skin cancers are now treatable with non-surgical methods including cryotherapy (application of liquid nitrogen), medical cream treatments or photodynamic therapy (a type of medical light therapy).

Some skin cancers require surgical treatment, but the majority of this treatment can be completed in a day clinic, outside of the hospital.
