Full-body skin examinations

Full body skin check

A full-body skin examination is a comprehensive assessment of your skin from head to toe. Our specially qualified doctors will thoroughly inspect your skin and examine any moles, freckles or bumps. 

The skin check lasts around 15 minutes. The doctor will examine your head, face, neck torso, legs, feet, toes, arms, hands, and fingers. You will be required to undress to your underwear and a gown or blanket can be provided for your comfort. Genital areas are not routinely examined; however, skin cancers can develop in any area of the body and you should inform the doctor about any suspicious spots under your underwear. The doctor will only check these areas if you request them to do so.

Please avoid wearing nail polish, make-up or a fake tan when you come in for your skin examination, as these products can disguise spots and make them harder to find.

Your skin will first be examined with a dermatoscope, which is a special skin microscope, which allows the doctor to see beneath the skin to make a decision regarding a suspicious skin lesion or mole. The procedure is completely painless. If the doctor finds a suspicious spot, they might take a photograph to be recorded and analysed, and they might take a biopsy which is a sample of the skin.

It is important to get your skin checked regularly by a qualified medical professional – at least once a year, or every few months if you are at high-risk of skin cancer or have been diagnosed with skin cancer previously. Routine self-examinations are also a good way to monitor your own skin in between skin checks, but should not be relied upon to catch every suspicious spot.
