MELANOMA: KEY IS EARLY DETECTION
Below are the key steps involved in the early detection of Melanoma and other Skin Cancers
Suspected lesions are examined using a special instrument called a Dermascope
Once mapped, the lesion is anaesthetised and surgically excised. The wound is then sutured back together to minimise scar formation.
Once the pathology results are back, they are discussed, and depending on the results, regular screening of skin maybe initiated
