I am really pleased to announce a new “Skin Cancer Screening & Mole Mapping” service. This is aimed at anyone with concerns about skin lesions, particularly with changing or irregular moles. Patients who spend a lot of times outdoors, have lived abroad or ever had past skin cancers are recommended to have ongoing surveillance to increase early detection and treatment.
Using cutting edge skin visualisation technology by world market leader Fotofinder, I can track any change of moles over time with highly magnified images, mapped to body locations, allowing easy comparison between visits. Accurate tracking cuts down unnecessary surgery, whilst making sure subtle changes are not missed.
Appointments involve whole body clinical examination and recording of any suspicious lesions that need monitoring. Following the first session, I will assess how often you should be screened with intervals varying from 3 months to annually. Reports of the screening are available on request for any patients requiring copies for home monitoring.
