General Skin Checks

General Skin Checks

Early detection of skin cancer is crucial.

Most skin cancers can be successfully treated if detected early.

On an average day any one of our dermatologists may find ten skin cancers which may have otherwise gone undiagnosed.

If you notice any new spots or changes in the colour, size or shape of existing spots, see your GP as soon as possible.

If your GP is concerned, they will refer you to a Dermatologist.
