It is well known that skin cancer is the most common cancer worldwide, and the rates continue to rise. Unsurprisingly, skin cancers make up a significant proportion of my work. As part of the multidisciplinary skin cancer team, I look after simple and complex skin cancers. Most skin cancers are very responsive to treatment and benefit from early detection and management.
As a Skin Cancer Specialist, the types of skin cancers I diagnose include:
- Basal cell carcinoma (or ‘rodent’ skin cancers)
- Squamous cell carcinoma
- Rare cancers (e.g. cutaneous T cell lymphoma, Kaposi’s sarcoma, Merkel cell carcinoma)
