Detect any suspicious moles early and help to put your mind at rest with our mole screening services.
Skin cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer within the United Kingdom, with 16,000 new cases of Melanoma skin cancer being reported each year. For this reason, we at Birmingham Dermatology Clinic believe that it is vital to undergo regular comprehensive check-ups for any abnormal skin imperfections that you may be concerned about.
To ensure that any potentially harmful skin conditions are detected as early on as possible, it is vital that you check any moles and other skin imperfections, such as freckles and spots, on a regular basis, working to track any changes that may occur. This should allow for any suspicious changes to be detected at an earlier stage so that they can be treated quickly and effectively.
What is Mole Screening?
Mole screening is the process by which the team at Birmingham Dermatology Clinic will examine any suspect moles that may appear on the surface of your skin, as to determine whether or not they are harmful to your overall health.
Through the use of specialist technology known as a digital photo-dermatoscope, our expert dermatologists are able to photograph any abnormal imperfections on the surface of your skin up-close. These images are then reviewed in detail as to identify any potentially harmful skin conditions, allowing us to provide you with the best possible treatment.
If necessary, we are able to remove any abnormal moles by excision, eliminating any danger to your health and granting you peace of mind. Any other moles that you wish to be treated for cosmetic reasons can be removed by shave biopsy; with Dr Camilo Diaz, you are in good hands.
When should you schedule a Mole Screening?
Early detection can save lives, so if you find yourself concerned about an abnormal imperfection on your skin, such as a mole that has grown in size, you may not want to wait for a referral from your general practitioner. At our private skin treatment clinic, we can arrange a consultation for your dermatologist skin cancer check straight away, meaning you won’t have to wait around for the treatment that you deserve.
Ideally, you should get in touch with our specialists to organise your mole screening if you notice that any skin imperfections begin to change in:
• Shape, becoming irregularly shaped or asymmetrical
• Size, growing larger
• Colour, becoming a darker or uneven colour
Our team are on hand to help, so get in touch for more information or to book your consultation.
