Skin Cancer Doctor
Dr Amelia Moane has been actively involved in the detection and management of skin cancer for 22 years and for the past 18 years has worked solely in the field of skin cancer medicine. She has extensive experience in full body skin cancer checks, mole scanning, spot checks, and treatment of cancers when detected with both surgical and nonsurgical methods.
Dr Amelia Moane was raised in rural Tasmania and gained her Bachelor of Medical Science and her Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery graduating with honours from the University of Tasmania in 1996. She then went on to achieve her Fellowship of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners in 2002 and completed further training in dermoscopy, skin cancer medicine and surgery in 2003. Dr Amelia is a member of the Skin Cancer College of Australasia.
In her first few weeks of general practice in Hobart Tasmania, Dr Amelia detected and excised a melanoma from the shoulder of a young lady in her early 20’s. A year later, Dr Amelia looked after the same young lady with her first pregnancy. This patient sparked Dr Amelia’s career long passion for early detection of melanoma and other skin cancers, knowing two lives would have been tragically lost if the young lady’s melanoma had gone undetected.
Upon moving to Brisbane in 2003, Dr Amelia was alarmed at the epidemic of skin cancer in the Sunshine State and has dedicated her practice solely to skin cancer detection and treatment ever since. Dr Amelia spotted her own husband’s melanoma (which was successfully treated) and, growing up on a farm with sun loving parents, she has had her own share of past sunburns and sun damage and hence understands her patients concerns well.
Away from work, Dr Amelia is a proud Mum of two beautiful boys who keep her busy with their sports, social lives, and interests. When she gets a chance to escape, she loves a good bushwalk. And, in spite of her work, Dr Amelia has a tremendous appreciation for the stunning beaches of South East Queensland and you may spot her on occasion of an early morning or late afternoon in full sun safe gear and heavy zinc cream enjoying the great outdoors.
