Skin Checks

Early detection of skin cancer is crucial.

Most skin cancers can be successfully treated if detected early.

On an average day a dermatologist may find ten skin cancers which may have otherwise gone undiagnosed.

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

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