Mr Abood offers a skin cancer screening service, involving a comprehensive assessment for those patients with moles that they are concerned about. He will examine all of your skin, not just skin lesions that may be concerning. The appointment includes an assessment of risk factors and a full cutaneous examination of your skin with a dermatoscope. Any areas or specific lesions of concern will be documented and discussed with you. If needed, Mr Abood has a fully equipped minor operating theatre available to carry out a biopsy there and then.
Part of the appointment will focus on educating you about the early warning signs of skin cancer and how to protect your skin from it. Following your consultation you will receive a detailed report.
To assess change over time, six-monthly or annual skin cancer screening appointments are recommended.
