Be Sun Smart! 🌞

It’s National Skin Cancer Action Week. Two in three Australians are diagnosed with skin cancer by the age of 70 and more than 2000 people die of skin cancer each year.

Most skin cancers are preventable by the use of good sun protection:

- slip on sun-protective clothing 👚

- Slop on SPF 30+ broad spectrum sunscreen ✋️

- Slap on a broad brimmed hat 🎩

- Seek shade ⛱

- Slide on sunglasses 🕶

It’s important to stay out of the sun from 11-3pm as that’s when the sun is strongest. If you need to step out make sure you keep exposure to a minimum and use protective gear.

Getting to know your skin and regularly checking your moles is a great way to notice any changes that you can alert to your doctor. Make sure you see your doctor if notice any change in the colour, size, shape of a mole or if they become itchy or bleed.

Skin checks are simple and easy and are a great way to prevent any long term problems.

Let’s join the #SunSmartGeneration with the Cancer Council Australia 😎

Book in for your skin check today.

Take care & stay healthy 🙂

Men’s Health | Enlarged Prostate Symptoms and Treatments

Did you know that over 600,000 men in Australia are affected with problems with their prostate? With over 30% of men over 50s having problems with their urinary system.

Today’s talk is all about Male’s Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia otherwise known as enlarged prostate - which is part of the male reproductive system.

SYMPTOMS

The symptoms you should look out for is any change or difficulty in passing water. Which can be categorised with problems holding your water.

- If you feel like you need to go to the toilet a lot more frequently.

- If you have problems passing water, for example getting the stream going or maintaining the stream, or experiencing any bleeding in the urine stream.

- If you experience dribbling after going to the toilet.

These are very important symptoms to look out for and you should see your doctor as soon as you notice them, as the quicker the symptoms can be managed the better the outcome is.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT THE DOCTOR

You can expect to have a blood test as well as an internal examination. Which is where one gloved lubricated finger is inserted into the back passage to detect an enlarged prostate or suspicious nodules.

TREATMENT

Treatment generally tends to be medication which can be started as soon as you notice symptoms, or alternatively you could be referred to a urologist for further investigations or for surgical treatment.

PREVENTION

The main take away point is that we want to prevent any long term bladder problems, and the way to do that is by raising awareness in the general population and making sure that if you suffer from any urinary problems to come see your doctor as soon as you can. It is a very common problem and your GP can guide you through this.

Did you know that the traditional PAP smear is changing in Australia?

It’s being replaced with a new Cervical Screening Programme from 1st December 2017.

What is the Cervical Screening Programme?

This is a test that is quick and simple to check the health of your cervix (neck of the womb). It is done by your health care provider.

What is different about the new programme?

The cervical screen is done in the same way as the traditional PAP smear so it will not feel any different to you.

The new test is more effective at detecting the human papilloma virus (HPV) that causes cervical abnormalities, at an earlier stage.

Who needs testing?

If you’re a woman aged between 25-74 years of age and have ever been sexually active the test is open for you every 5 years.

When shall I have a cervical screening test?

Your first test will be due at 25 years of age or two years after your last PAP test. If your result is normal you will be due in five years for your next test.

How common is Cervical Cancer?

Cervical cancer is rare. In Australia every year around 800 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer. However most cervical cancer is preventable with regular screening.

Feel free to drop by my clinic if you have any further questions.

Take care & stay healthy

Australian GP Graduation Experience | RACGP 💖

GRADUATED!! For the third time - yes, that’s right, after transferring from the NHS over to the lovely Gold Coast, the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners have honoured me as one of their new fellows.

Join me as we head to Brisbane’s Convention Centre together and graduate!

For all you budding GPs out there, I have to say that it is a great career to pursue, getting to help people is the best part of my job. It’s hard work - 5 years of med school, 5 years of post-graduate studies and experience as a NHS doctor, 6 months of experience working as an Australian GP and of course competing the essential CEMP training course. But, it’s worth it.

RACGP

The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners is the professional body for general practitioners in Australia.

The RACGP vision is for a ‘Healthy Profession, Healthy Australia’. The organisational mission is to improve the health and wellbeing of all people in Australia by supporting GPs, general practice registrars and medical students through its principle activities of education, training and research, and by assessing doctors’ skills and knowledge, offering ongoing professional development activities, developing resources and guidelines, advocating for GPs on issues that affect their practice, and developing standards that general practices use to ensure high quality healthcare.
