For any suspicious or undetermined lesions or moles, a skin biopsy or formal excision is usually recommended, so that that a tissue sample can be taken and sent to a laboratory to check for the presence of skin cancer.
Local anaesthetic is always provided for skin excision procedures to minimise pain or discomfort.
A Skin Cancer and Mole Check is a 30 minute appointment. It involves a full consultation with the doctor, a full body examination using a dermoscope, and may include dermal imaging of any suspicious moles.
Should any skin lesions require biopsy, excision or treatment, this is able to be done in-house and a quote will be provided at the time of the initial skin check.
