Self Check for Skin Cancer.

Phones & Apps are best

The aims of a self-check

The objective of a skin cancer self-check is to pick up a lesion in-between your regular skin check. Self-checking cannot be relied upon as the final answer to whether you have a skin cancer.  Most skin cancers detected by a skin cancer doctor were not flagged by the patient as a concern.

Traditional self-skin check

It’s always a good idea to keep an eye out for new or changing skin lesions in between your regular appointments.

You may perform a head to toe skin check:

  • Using a Mirror
  • Or by asking your partner
  • Or using a smartphone
