Skin Cancer

Causes Of Skin Cancer

It is important that our patients have their skin checked for abnormal moles, signs of sun damage or skin cancer.
Sun exposure over a life time, especially sun burn in early childhood, is an important risk factor in the development of skin cancer. A new or changing mole requires urgent referral to a dermatologist and should not be ignored.

Patients with multiple or irregular moles are more at risk of developing melanomas and should monitor their moles on a regular basis. Some skin cancers are easily treatable, however some melanomas and cancerous moles have the potential to spread and cause wide spread disease, so early detection is vital.

Skin Cancer Treatment

Our dermatologists are specifically trained to diagnose lesions by looking at them and if necessary performing a biopsy.

Same day treatment is offered in most cases and, depending on the diagnosis, sometimes creams are used to kill the cancer cells, or scraping the lesion away to the appropriate depth, cutting it out, freezing it with liquid nitrogen, using photodynamic therapy or occasionally radiotherapy. The choice of treatment will depend on the tumour type.
