Skin cancer symptoms: ‘Everyone’ at risk warns doctor - early signs of a cancerous mole
Share this @internewscast.com


“Your GP will do an examination and likely take a picture which is sent to a specialist Dermatologist for diagnosis.

“However, a visual check of your skin only finds moles that may be cancer and can’t tell you for sure that you have it.

“The only way to diagnose the condition is with a test called a biopsy.

“If your doctor thinks a mole is a problem, you will be given a shot of numbing medicine, then a scrape of the mole will be taken. This is virtually pain-free with the sample of the mole being sent to a lab where a pathologist will check it under a microscope for cancer cells.”
