09 February 2023


Skin cancers do not all look the same, they can appear in a number of ways including any of the following.

A small lump

Flat, red spot

Firm, red lump

A lump or spot that is tender to touch

An ulcer that will not heal

A lump with a scaly or horny top

Rough, scaly patches

A new or changing mole.


How to check your skin

Check yourself regularly, early detection and treatment offers an excellent chance of a cure. Examine yourself from head to toe every month. Learn the moles, freckles and other skin marks that are normal for you.

When you book a consultation for mole mapping with Dr. Susana Fontana, she will  review your medical conditions, active medication, family history of skin cancer or skin conditions. Then the diagnosis will make it after examination of your skin. Dr. Susana may look at your skin with a dermoscopy to determine whether your skin changes are likely to be skin cancer, skin growth, skin tags, cherry angioma or any other skin conditions that you may have.

If Further testing may be needed to confirm the diagnosis, and as a part of our protocol, we send our patients to the Beacon Hospital if a biopsy is required.
