> Skin Checks
Skin cancer often goes undetected, as it can appear in different forms and in places that are difficult to see. By getting yourself screened at least once a year, you are taking the first step in detecting skin cancer in its early stages. The good news is that skin cancer is almost fully preventable if it is caught soon enough. While the majority of moles and freckles are harmless, it is best to have them checked regularly for any unusual signs. At My Skin Plus, we are dedicated to making the mole scan process as quick and painless as possible. On average, a skin check only takes about 15 minutes. This check covers your entire body, as skin cancer can show up in the most unusual places.That’s why a thorough check is important. For this procedure, we will check all areas of your skin. The process is quick and easy, and your comfort is our primary concern throughout the entire procedure. If you have any areas of concern, be sure to let us know. At My Skin Centre, we use a dermatoscope which illuminates and magnifies the skin for a detailed view. During the dermoscopy, we will carefully inspect your moles and freckles, and also take a closer look at any irregularities in the hair follicles and capillaries. As we perform this procedure, we will make note of anything unusual. We use Derm Engine to record and analyse the moles.
> Full Body Imaging
My Skin Plus uses DermEngine - the latest Artificial Intelligence software to identify changes to the skin over time prioritized by amount of change to detect skin cancer or other diseases at the earliest opportunity.
> Detection of Skin Cancer
Some melanomas are easy to diagnose but most of the early melanomas are difficult to confirm. With the use of dermatoscopy and Artificial Intelligence analysis, each mole suspected of melanoma is compared with thousands of similar moles in the database to find out the odds of it being cancerous. The Doctors at My Skin Plus will discuss with you the best possible management strategy.
> Treatment of all Skin Cancer
After diagnosis of skin cancer the Doctor will discuss with you about the management. Depending on the area and the size of the lesion he/she can advise a biopsy to confirm. Should a lesion require treatment, your doctor will discuss treatment options with you. These may include cryotherapy (liquid nitrogen), topical therapy (with a medical cream treatment), skin biopsy, or a surgical excision.
