TAL SpotChecker

Supporting Australians to stay skin-safe all year round.

At TAL, we're always thinking of new ways to protect every aspect of this Australian life, and helping Australians understand skin safety is one of them. With about two in three Australians to be diagnosed with skin cancer before the age of 701, it's one of Australia’s most common cancers, but also one of the most easily detectable and preventable.

Getting your skin checked regularly by a qualified professional is not only important, it’s also a quick and simple way to identify any irregular spots. Research from the Cancer Council shows that early detection of skin cancer can increase chances of successful treatment.

We're there for you, when you're too busy to take care of yourself

Like most Australians, you're always looking out for your friends and family. You'll provide whatever they need and whenever they need you, you do your best to be there. You’re always trying to help them become the best they can be, the healthiest they can be, and the happiest they can be.

But it’s rare for you to look out for yourself and sometimes, 'self-care' just isn’t a term in your vocabulary. The people you look out for have your back and so do we. That's why we're making it easier for you and your loved ones to get a skin check.

It’s important to talk to your GP about your skin type and ask for advice on early detection. They can tell you how frequently you should be getting professional skin checks to complement your regular self-checks.

You can visit your regular GP, dermatologist or a skin cancer clinic for a professional skin check.
