Skin Cancer is in the news frequently these days and quite rightly since it is on the increase.
If you have a new or changing mole or a 'sore' on your skin which crusts but does not heal then make an appointment for one of the Skin Clinics.
You will be given a full body skin check on your first appointment and any suspicious areas examined using a dermoscope( skin microscope)
Biopsy or removal of lesions can usually be undertaken on site saving unnecessary trips to hospital. Advice on skin cancer prevention and early detection will be given. It is now possible to treat the sun damage and early stages of skin cancer with special creams, sometimes avoiding the need for surgery.
