Our centre has a dedicated skin clinic operating daily. Our skin doctor has completed additional training, offering comprehensive skin cancer checks as well as operative and non-operative treatments. Please note, a skin check appointment is used solely for checking your skin to allow sufficient time for your doctor to thoroughly check over your body.
The skin cancer check includes taking your medical history, including previous sun UV exposure, as well as undertaking a detailed examination of your skin. If any moles or lesions have developed or changed in size or nature recently, our doctor will assess and recommend the necessary treatment. For a full body examination, you will be asked to undress to your underwear. You are welcome to bring a chaperone and have them present if this will make you feel more comfortable.
Our practice offers services including MoleMax technology, cryotherapy, skin biopsies, full excisions with complex repairs including flaps and grafts, as well as referrals on to plastic surgeons where appropriate. We recommend you see your doctor for a skin check at least annually. Please be sure to mention to your doctor if there is something sore, changing, abnormal or new. If you notice any changes to any lesions prior to your next appointment, it is advised to book an appointment immediately with your GP for an examination.
