Who should I talk to if I am concerned about skin cancer?

Who should I talk to if I am concerned about skin cancer?

In the first instance, you may want to visit your GP who can provide you with an initial assessment of mole or skin lesion of concern. Your GP should be able to do a full-body skin check which can highlight any potential issues.

If you are not comfortable that your GP has adequate training in skin cancer or melanoma, it would be worth visiting a skin cancer clinic where GPs with a specific interest in skin health can be found. For specialist attention, you can see a dermatologist. Depending on the country in which you are based, in you may need a referral from your GP to benefit from government funding support for a dermatologist consultation.

Before you seek medical advice, you can perform a skin check yourself. We would recommend this be done a regular basis to know your skin and monitor moles which may mutate over time (change from being benign to malignant). We would advocate a skin check from a medical professional yearly and if you have a specific concern we recommend that you seek immediate medical attention.
