Worried about skin cancer?

One of our most common enquiries is about suspected skin cancers in new or changed moles or other lumps and bumps on the skin. This is particularly prominent because of the increase in such skin diseases, but also the awareness that has been raised by campaigns to catch these things early.

We offer a service for rapid assessment for people concerned about any lumps, bumps or marks so that we can put your mind at rest. In most cases we can also offer an assessment of the whole skin to check for other possible marks for completeness.

The vast majority of marks on the skin are innocent and what we need to be aware of is what risks there may be for skin cancers such as excessive sun exposure at any time during life, either in childhood, during work outside or living abroad or using sun beds for example.

The most important factor is “Is this a new mark, or has it changed rapidly, either growing, changing colour, bleeding or becoming an unusual shape?

Where a visual check is not sufficient we can advise on the need for skin biopsy and arrange this at our clinic or write to your GP – it’s up to you.
