All our doctors are expertly trained in dermoscopy, which has now become the world standard in early skin cancer diagnosis. It provides an imaging system to “see through” the top layer of skin.
This unique view allows the doctor to assess what is happening to the skin cells that are otherwise invisible to the naked eye. The doctor can identify unusual early activity in the skin cell patterns and provide an early skin cancer diagnosis – often before a spot starts to look unusual on the surface.
We may also use high-resolution imaging to photograph suspicious spots. Our doctors use these images to study your spots in more detail and record them for future skin checks. We can then compare the lesions to past photographs and identify any changes which could indicate skin cancer.
Early detection of skin cancer is crucial to prevent disfigurement or even death. Dermoscopy is a very important tool in detecting cancers before they become dangerous, as no mole is left unexamined. Our doctors’ expert training with state-of-the-art technology gives you the peace of mind that your skin cancers will be found and treated at the earliest stage.
