A-League: Roar top as Melb City falter


Striker Smeltz's cancer scare warning

Perth Glory striker Shane Smeltz is urging others to get any suspicious moles on their skin checked after being shaken by a cancer scare.

A melanoma was found on Smeltz's leg during a physiotherapy session earlier this year and the New Zealand international underwent a procedure to have the tumour removed.

Smeltz was given the all-clear on Monday, and turned to Twitter in a bid to promote awareness about the issue.

"I have to sound like a parent now.. & tell everyone to get their skin checked! I never did & was lucky I found a small mole myself." Smeltz wrote.

"If I had of left it things could be different down the track! Go get a check it takes 5min & could be worth it!

Smeltz is contracted to Perth Glory for another year, but will miss the start of the A-League season after undergoing recent surgery on his hip.

The 31-year-old is expected to be out of action until early November, and the A-League's leading goalscorer revealed the hip issue had plagued him for a whole year.

"Basically ever since I was away at the London Olympics with New Zealand last off-season," Smeltz told the club's website.

"That was a really busy period for me and that was when I first noticed that I had an issue with the hip and the groin all down the one side.

"It never really went away and I ended up carrying it all last season.

"I was just managing it and getting through, but worrying about your body week-to- week is obviously not good for your game.

"It got to a stage last season where I had to have a couple of cortisone injections and we never really put our finger on exactly what was causing the problem."
