Do regular skin checks

Although skin cancer is very common amongst us, most skin cancers are treatable if found early

 

♦ Regular Self Skin Checks are very important 

 

How to do a Self Skin Check

 

  • Make sure you have a long mirror and use a well-lit area.
  • Someone else may be able to help you check areas that are hard to examine by yourself e.g. your back.
  • If a change in colour, size, shape or texture of a spot is noticed, please make an appointment to see one of our skin cancer doctors.
  • Click Skin check part 1 and thereafter part 2 below to see how you can perform a Step-by-Step Self Skin Check.
  • Do this regularly, on either the 1st of the month or the 1st day of each season
