The majority of my patients with skin cancer would normally be attended for their routine skin checks to assess sites of previous tumour, check for new areas and to have a full body skin check. Many however, due to this phase of coronavirus, fall into the "at-risk" group and it is not safe for them to come and see me in hospital. I also have to weigh up the risk of bringing a patient out of their homes, increasing risk of COVID-19 and their underlying skin disorders.
This guide to self-examining the skin can be really useful and remember: it is normally the patient who first spots the skin cancer. So make it a good habit now and use this guide. If you are really worried about a mole then do let your dermatologist know. Take and send a good quality photograph (see the subpage 'Virtual Consults' to know how to do so).
