Unfortunately, every year I see more cases of skin cancer and increasingly in younger patients. Worldwide there is an increased incidence of skin cancer associated with our changing lifestyles over the last 40-50 years.
I have treated hundreds of patients every year with skin cancer both privately and within the NHS. I am able to offer early diagnosis and definitive treatment ONE STOP SKIN CLINIC of all forms of skin cancer and routinely provide a mole/skin lesion screening service to my patients at my at The Princess Margaret Hospital, Windsor. We provide a mole screening clinic every week at which we can see you and remove any suspicious mole or skin lesion on the same day. The excised mole is sent away to be checked by a specialist skin pathologist who will issue a written report within a few days.
Moles which become cancerous are known as melanomas and early diagnosis and removal is the best form of treatment. Unfortunately, medical treatment is ineffective in the early stages of this cancer. The spread of melanoma can be widespread throughout the body and is potentially fatal if it has spread to the vital organs.
