Book in for Skin Check Today

Don’t forget that your moles are still there under your winter clothing! Get a skin check today, as this is an ideal time in the year to have that done. The sooner a skin cancer is identified and treated, the better your chance of avoiding surgery or in the case of a serious melanoma or other skin cancer, potential disfigurement or even death.
It is also a good idea to talk to your doctor about your level of risk and for advice on early detection.
It’s important to get to know your skin and what is normal for you, so that you notice any changes. Skin cancers rarely hurt and are much more frequently seen than felt.
Develop a regular habit of checking your skin for new spots and changes to existing freckles or moles.
