Cancer USB stick nicked from GP

GP IAN FALSON is scratching his head after the disappearance of a unique USB stick from a computer at his Ballina practice.

The small device is used to gain access diagnostic software program for detecting and mapping skin cancer.

Dr Falson said when he returned to work on Thursday after having Wednesday off the USB was gone.

“It's always in the computer and it's not something that can fall out,” Dr Falson said.

Dr Falson said the stick was of absolutely no use to anyone unless they used the same program to diagnose melanoma.

Without it, Dr Falson can't use the software.

The USB stick is a yellow-orange colour and may have ‘Molemate' – the name of the program – written on it.

If you know where it is, contact Dr Falson's office on 6686 4780 or post it to 1/90 Tamar St, Ballina.
