What is SkinCheck

SkinCheck provides 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. This service is for you if you have concerns that one of your moles is new or has grown, or if you want a full skin examination.

At SkinHealth UK we only work with highly experienced skin cancer nurses, many of whom still work in NHS skin cancer clinics. Our nurses operate from a network of clinics/hospitals in England & Scotland, so we can book you into a clinic close to your home or workplace.

Why should I get checked?

Although for the most part moles are healthy, early detection of the small number that develop into skin cancer 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

Detecting Skin Cancer

SkinHealth UK believes early detection of skin cancer is essential. This is why we offer SkinCheck, a mole 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 (either online or by the nurse at your appointment) which asks you questions about lifestyle and skin type. We will then book you an apointment with a skin specialist nurse.

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

The service is made up of two parts. Firstly, you will complete 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

Digital photography is also used for any suspicious lesion and these images will be reported by our skin specialist consultants. Unlike other companies, we do not charge per image and our service is all inclusive. Whether you have 1 mole or 20, the cost is the same.

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 skin cancer specialist. 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. Please note that larger moles may not be able to be removed and may need complex surgery with reconstruction.

What to expect

What will the appointment entail?

Your mole screening and complete skin examination will examine all of your moles, including your back and soles of the feet, and any suspicious skin lesions will be analysed using state of the art technology (dermoscopy and digital photography) by consultant skin cancer specialists.

When do I get my SkinCheck results?

If no suspicious skin lesions are identified on examination, you will be reassured by our specialist skin cancer nurse and a results letter will be emailed to you within 48 hours. If any digital or dermoscopic images are taken for telemedicine reporting, our consultant skin cancer specialist will produce a report within 3-5 working days. The report will include mole by mole images and results, with advice about whether further investigation or treatment is required.

If I have images taken, what might the report say?

If you have digital or dermoscopic images taken during your SkinCheck appointment, there are three possible outcomes as follows:
  1. No suspicious features – you will be reassured that no further treatment is required
  2. No suspicious features – surgery would only be required for cosmetic or functional reasons (bleeding or weeping)
  3. Suspicious features – further investigations and probable biopsy required

Where would I have further treatment required?

If your SkinCheck assessment identifies any suspicious features, you will require further investigation or treatment. SkinHealth UK can arrange for you to be seen privately by one of our specialist skin cancer consultants in our network or if you would like to be referred to the NHS, our detailed results letter can be taken to your GP who can refer you to a local skin cancer clinic.
