Edinburgh (PRWEB UK) 3 August 2012
With malignant melanoma on the rise, Dermatology Edinburgh is making it easier than ever to have a full body mole check for a rediced price £180.
The offer involves a full body visual examination with hand held dermatoscope and scanning of up to 4 moles with Siascope. Patients concerned about any moles or the monitoring of suspicious moles can be placed on an annual recall list to be invited back in 1 year or sooner if deemed necessary.
More people aged over 50 are developing malignant melanoma in Scotland, the actual number tripling in the last 30 years. Every week, around four people in this age group are diagnosed with it in Scotland.
It is thought that the popularity of package holidays during the 1950s and 1960s may be partly to blame for the rise of cases because people were less aware of how much the sun could damage their skin back then.
A serious case of sunburn every couple of years can triple the risk of developing melanoma. While melanoma is very serious, it can be treated effectively and quickly if it is caught at an early stage. During the month of August and September, the Dermatology Edinburgh's medical experts are providing a full body mole check for the reduced price of £180. This investigation usually costs £210 and includes a full body examination, the screenings of suspicious lesions using the latest screening equipment and an instant in-depth report.
Dermatology Edinburgh is based at the Edinburgh Clinic in Edinburgh and its highly trained medical staff can examine the skin and moles to alleviate anxiety. This investigation can also identify any problems early on so that treatment can begin as soon as possible.
As well as picking up melanoma, the clinic can also detect other types of skin cancer, such as basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. The clinic's skilled medical professionals can also carry out skin biopsies to obtain a more accurate diagnosis of a condition.
