Skin cancer checks

The Nelson population has got high of skin cancer occurrence rates.

If you or your friend/family have got any skin spot that is enlarging, changing in colour, bleeding, painful or just don't feel right it is wise to come in and have it checked.

All our doctors have access to dermoscopy that allow for magnified view of the skin spots to pick up any early signs of skin cancer changes. Dr Chen has done further training with the Skin Cancer College's Advanced Certificate in Dermoscopy and is always happy to provide skin checks and second opinions in support of the doctors.

We have PHO allocated skin cancer funding which may be used to help with your treatment.

We run monthly ‘freeze’ clinics (treating skin lesions with liquid nitrogen) and most of the doctors offer biopsy, excision and diagnostic (dermoscopy) services
