A standard full skin examination takes 15 - 20 minutes and can be booked by making an appointment with our reception staff. If a small procedure or treatment is required, this can often be done during the same consultation. However more complex procedures may require a separate appointment.
During a skin check it is preferable to look over all of the skin. About a third to a half of the skin cancers we find are spots that the person wasn't really aware of, or wasn't concerned about enough to mention before they were identified by the doctor.
We normally ask you to undress down to underwear for a skin check.
