SkinHealth UK believes early detection of skin cancer is essential. This is why we offer SkinCheck, a mole screening and skin cancer screening service.

Do you have concerns that one of your moles is new or has grown? SkinCheck is now available to provide a complete mole screening service. This involves a detailed examination of your moles, and a complete skin examination, to give you peace of mind and ensure early detection of any problems.

You will be asked to complete an online risk assessment which asks you questions about lifestyle and skin type. We will then book you an appointment with a skin specialist nurse.

What is included in SkinCheck mole screening and skin cancer screening service?

An online skin cancer risk assessment based on lifestyle and skin type. This is followed by a 25 minute consultation with a skin specialist nurse comprising of:

  • A review of the risk assessment
  • Complete skin examination using dermoscopy
  • Tuition in what to look out for
  • Education in early detection, skin health and how best to protect your skin
  • Results letter for moles specifically imaged for a detailed opinion

Why choose SkinCheck?

The mole screening and complete skin examination will examine all your moles (including your back) and any unusual ones will be analysed using the latest technology (dermoscopy) by leading national experts. You will also learn what to look out for to aid early skin cancer detection.

Where can I have SkinCheck?

SkinCheck mole screening may be available in an in-company clinic, near to work clinic or in a private hospital close to your home or work. See our clinics page for more information about locations.

What does mole screening cost?

SkinCheck mole screening costs £175. Please see our prices page for further information.

Why do I need these tests?

Although for the most part moles are healthy, early detection of the small number that undergo change to melanoma is important in avoiding long term risk to your health. The mole screening service will give you a good idea about how to check your skin and skin health. Most importantly you will get a thorough skin cancer screening examination to give you peace of mind.

When do I get my results?

Within 5 days from your consultation you will receive a mole by mole result letter.

If the outcome from a mole screening consultation finds any issues that need further investigation, SkinHealth UK offers a 2nd opinion service which is a 15 to 30 minute consultation by a dermatologist. If a mole or lesion is suspicious and a potential removal is needed, SkinHealth UK offer a OneStop service, a 15 to 30 minute consultation with removal of skin mole if necessary.

Know the facts and the risks of skin cancer

Around 13,300 cases of malignant melanoma were diagnosed in 2011 in the UK, that’s 37 people every day.

  • More than one third of all cases of malignant melanoma occur in people under 55.
  • The incidence of melanoma is doubling every 10 years
  • Certain skin types are more at risk of skin cancer
  • Early detection will save lives

It is better to check for skin related problems before any skin cancer symptoms arise. Early detection, such as diagnosing skin cancer at an early stage, means better quality of life and less treatment, including surgery. SkinCheck puts you in control of your own skin health by providing a complete skin cancer screening service.
