After all, a client on a previous occasion had complained to her boss when she had inquired about a couple of lumps on his scalp.

However Ms Panozzo pushed ahead, not only pointing out the unusual bumpto clientJohn Whittington but insisting that he get it checked out by a doctor.

Thankfully the 53-year-old stevedore wasn’t insulted; acting on her advice directly after the haircut.

‘’I went straight down to the medical centre a couple of floors beneath the hairdresser, and got it checked out,’’ he said.

‘’It had all the signs of a melanoma and I was referred to a melanoma clinic in Wollongong where it was cut out, withfurther investigation confirming it was malignant.

‘’I underwent further surgeryto remove a wider sectionand some lymph nodes, and was again back under the knife just last week to get 40 lymph nodes taken from behind my ear.

‘’Because it was spreading I’m very lucky I had it checked out when I did –god knows what would have happened if Ingrid hadn’t encouraged me to do so.’’

MsMallia Panozzo, of Just Cuts Wollongong, said shewas simply doing her job.

‘’I was cutting John’s hair when I noticed it –it looked like he’d bumped his head and it was bleeding a little bit,’’ she said.

‘’Alarm bells just started to ring and I insisted he go and check it out.

‘’You don’t have eyes in the back of your head, so as a hairdresser I think it’s important to point out anything unusual on a client’s head.

‘’It’s just a small thing but it can have a big impact.’’

Mr Whittington, of North Wollongong, felt it was ‘’fate’’ he’d been shopping in the CBD that day in April and hadpopped in for a trim.

After his diagnosis he went back to the salon and tracked downMsMallia Panozzo.

‘’Too often people get criticised but they don’t get thanked so for me it was important to thank Ingrid for being insistent,’’ he said.

Ms Mallia Panozzo added: ‘’I work in three different Just Cuts salons so I just happened to be in the right place at the right time that day. It still gives megoosebumps when I think about it.

‘’Some people don’t takehairdressers seriously butwhen someone gives you advice, whetherthey’re a hairdresser, a waiter or a doctor, it might beworth listening.’’
