Came for a "check up" Doc!

Ever wondered what is checked up when you come for a checkup? Well, your skin is examined in general and if any sunspots are found, you wil be offered treatment with liquid nitrogen. Skin cancers are looked for carefully. These include basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma. Moles are checked for any abnormalities. If such moles are found, you will be offered mole mapping and an opportunity to have them followed up at intervals. Treatment of liver spots is optional and are treated only if desired. Seborrhoeic keratoses are not dangerous and may be left alone or treated if you want. Anything that is likely to change is discussed with you. Skin tags, red spots (Campbell de Morgan spots), sebaceous hyperplasia (prominent oil glands) can all be easily treated if desired. General advice regarding sun protection is given. Depending on what is found, follow up is usually at annual or 6 monthly intervals.
