Skin cancer is one of the most common cancers in the UK and the number of people who get it is ever increasing.
Most skin cancers are caused by damage from UV (ultraviolet) rays in sunlight. These cancers could be prevented if we protect ourselves from the sun.
At The Westbourne Centre, we feel early detection is the key to saving lives and we recommend an annual mole screening.
A member of our specialist team will carry out a ‘top-to-toe’ visual assessment and, using the latest digital computerised technology, analyse any moles that have changed or any moles that have suddenly appeared. If necessary, a referral will be made to one of our consultant surgeons who will make a decision on whether the mole needs to be removed and sent for further investigation.
The mole screening can offer peace of mind that a regular check may detect any early signs of skin cancer and therefore enable you to act immediately to help prevent further change.
