Mole Check | Skin Cancer Screening | Diamond Skin Care

 

Who Checks Your Moles?

Diamond Skin Safe is the most advanced skin cancer service for immediate peace of mind and a life free of skin cancer.

Most people rely on family and friends to pick up or watch their suspicious skin growths and moles. Seeing a doctor and then waiting for specialist assessment and treatment can mean many weeks of worry and asking yourself ‘ could it be cancerous? could it spread?

Sun screens and sun protection did not really exist 30-40 years ago and sun damage in childhood is a major risk factor for skin cancer in later life. Spotting an advanced skin cancer is easy enough, but catching the earliest changes is a highly specialist area. Skin cancers generally have no symptoms.

Advanced skin cancers are difficult and sometimes impossible to treat. Yet early skin cancers are essentially curable! To learn more about how you can spot a skin cancer, please sign up to the link below.

Diamond Skin Safe uses the best early detection technology (digital dermoscopy) in the hands of trained experts. This allows for a magnified, polarised light examination beneath the skins surface. Specialists can therefore detect the earliest changes or abnormalities beneath the skin’s surface which the eye misses over time.

We are the UK's only specialist led skin cancer screening and monitoring programme.

‘Every one knows that early detection saves lives, but not everyone knows how to detect early.’ - Dr D Rallan, International Academic Expert in Dermoscopy and Chief Dermatologist, DSC Ltd

What Happens On The Day?

You will be seen by a senior specialist, with or without a junior specialist present. Details of your medical background, sun exposure background and family history will be recorded.

You will be required to undress down to the undergarments, a female chaperone is always present within your mole check. The first examination position is lying on your front with arms above your head, palms facing down. Your specialist will then examine each area covering the feet, lower legs, thighs, back (torso), neck area and arms. The second examination position is lying on your back, arms above your head, palms facing up. Each area is examined as before including the face and forehead.

Within each area, some moles or freckles may be selected for a detailed photographic and dermoscopic record. They are generally the darker or more irregular looking moles and the purpose of recording is to ensure that they are stable (unchanged) despite the unusual appearance. These will be marked with a washable skin marker during the examination prior to photography. Sometimes, a (ultrasound) gel is applied to the skin for the dermoscopic photograph.


What If Skin Cancer Is Found?

Your specialist will let you know if they are concerned about any of the growths or moles on the skin. You may opt to have surgical removal if required through our service (discounted for programme members) or, you may choose to be referred into the NHS which we can arrange via your GP. We have skin cancer screening clinics in Norwich and Great Yarmouth

With any cancer, nobody should have to wait or worry - ‘Early detection, Life Protection’.
