Skin cancer diagnostic clinics open through lockdown

Skin cancer clinics open throughout the UK

If you have any concerns about a specific mole or any skin lesion, then Check4Cancer can provide you with quick access to our skin diagnosis clinics through lockdown. We have specialist clinics located throughout the UK, that are open and reserved for skin diagnosis appointments.  We understand that during this period NHS access is limited and we are offering this service to self-pay customers for £175.

What can I expect at my skin diagnosis appointment?

  • An experienced skin cancer nurse will conduct an assessment of moles/lesions of concern using Dermoscopy.*
  • High quality digital and dermoscopic images will be taken of any suspicious moles/ lesions.
  • Following your appointment, you will receive a mole/lesion results letter within five working days of your appointment. The results letter will contain any images that were taken on the day for your records.
  • If any abnormality is discovered, Check4Cancer can assist you with a referral to your GP or a private consultant for further investigation.

* Dermoscopy is a non-invasive method to examine your skin. A dermatoscope is a hand-held instrument, a bit like a magnifying glass, which can magnify an area by up to 10 times. The nurse will normally put some lubricant on your skin and then will place the dermatoscope on your skin so they can examine the area very closely. This process does not hurt or affect your skin.

  • If you are concerned about a specific mole or any new skin lesions, this service is for you.
