Skin Cancer

Diagnosis and Treament

Luckily, the vast majority of moles and other skin lesions are non-cancerous (benign). Nevertheless, skin cancer is an increasingly common problem. Changes in our lifestyles and behaviour, including greater time spent abroad in sunny climes and the prevalent use of sunbeds, have increased our exposure to ultraviolet light. This results not only in aging changes in the skin but also in an increased risk of skin cancer.
