Medical HQ perform skin checks or skin screening services at all clinics. Skin checks are a medical procedure performed by our doctors and nurses to inspect the skin for any abnormalities, lesions, or signs of skin cancer. During a skin check, the healthcare provider carefully examines the skin from head to toe, including areas that are not typically exposed to the sun, such as the scalp, between toes, and genital area.

Skin checks are important for early detection of skin cancer, as well as other skin conditions like moles, lesions, and dermatitis. They are especially recommended for individuals with a history of sun exposure, fair skin, family history of skin cancer, or a personal history of skin cancer.

The procedure may involve visual inspection using a magnifying glass or dermatoscope, and in some cases, a biopsy may be taken if a suspicious lesion is found. Regular skin checks are crucial for maintaining skin health and catching any potential issues early when they are most treatable.
