What is a skin check?

A skin check is a thorough examination of your skin for any sign of precancerous or cancerous lesions. As part of this process you will be asked to undress, keeping on your undergarments. The Nurse will then check your skin completely, using a magnifying device called a Dermatoscope. Lesions that may require monitoring will be photographed, for reassessment or treatment with your GP or Dermatologist.
