Skin Cancer Surgery
The following video resource has been created by Mr Dean White to assist his patients in better understanding Skin Cancer and Treatment Options which may include Surgery.
FOLLOW UP/FURTHER PREVENTION
No matter what type of skin cancer you have had it is very important to have a plan in place for follow up – both of the cancer you have had treated and detection of new lesions.
This involves regular skin surveillance by yourself in conjunction with your doctors. If you notice any changes in your skin, or lumps appearing in your lymph nodes (glands), such as in your neck, armpits or groin, please let your doctors know. Depending on the type of lesion you have, follow up may be with your local doctor, a dermatologist or Mr White.
It is never too late to start applying good prevention measures such as sunscreens, hats, sunglasses and minimising exposure to sunlight when the sun is strongest in the middle part of the day.
This information sheet is provided as a general guide only. The specific circumstances of your condition need to be discussed with Mr White.
