Mole screening test

Mole screening and skin cancer checks are available at Spire Dunedin Hospital.

Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the UK, with more than 72,000 cases reported each year and is responsible for more than 2,300 deaths every year in the UK. It is mostly developed as a result of over exposure to ultraviolet light, from sunlight or sun-beds, irrespective of skin type.
