“Get those worrying moles checked out at Dr Simon Reid’s Find Out Friday Clinic.”

by Susanne Ellis, on 4th April 2014 | 2 comments


If you are over 40 and have new or changing moles, it may well be worth getting them checked. This is best done by a doctor trained in the use of dermoscopy; a new science using magnification and polarised light. It is quick and simple and suspicious moles can be diagnosed and dealt with, and of course it can be a great feeling to be re-assured if all is well. High risk groups include red haired or blonde, have lived or worked in a tropical climate, have a family history of skin cancer, or have had sunburn in earlier life. “I have worked in the Skin Clinic at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital for the past 13 years and see skin cancer on a daily basis, and know the key to successful treatment is early diagnosis. So if you are in doubt, get a skin check!”
