Tips For Your Skin Check Appointment


  • Arrive 10 minutes prior to the appointment to ensure patient enrolment occurs smoothly.


  • Ask your parents and siblings if they have had any skin cancers treated, this history is important. List your own personal history.


  • Your Dermatologist will ask you if there are any lesions you are concerned about . List the lesions you have noted. Some patients even circle the lesions.


  • Please do not wear heavy make up to your skin check appointment. The Dermatologist will need to remove this to accurately assess your skin. If Makeup is important , schedule an appointment at the end of a day.


  • To perform a full skin examination you will be asked to undress down to your underwear. A limited examination may be provided on request.
