Diamond SkinSafe is the most advanced skin cancer service for immediate peace of mind and a life free of worry about 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!
Diamond SkinSafe uses the best early detection technology (digital dermoscopy) in the hands of trained experts. This allows for a magnified, polarised light examination beneath the skin’s 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 founded 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
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 and a female chaperone is always present. 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.
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’.

I will definitely visit the clinic on an annual basis to have my moles checked and would recommend this service to other people!
The consultant on both visits was professional, pleasant and courteous. The medical suites are clean and welcoming!
Such a treat to be spoken to as a person with plenty of time to listen to my concerns - unfortunately the clinicians just don't have the time in their busy NHS surgeries - Thank you!
I have a considerable number of moles and blemishes. The consultation reassured me that none give cause for concern. I am now more aware of the likely appearance of suspect moles.
I suffered with skin problems for two years before going to Diamond Skin Care and within a week of my consultation my condition had improved enormously!
I could not have wished for better attention. How lucky we are to have such a facility to be able to receive quick and efficient treatment.Everything 1st Class, you will see me again in the future no doubt!
