Melanoma is the most serious type of skin cancer, arising from pigment-producing cells in the skin. While less common than other skin cancers, it has the potential to spread to other parts of the body if left untreated. Early detection is crucial for successful treatment. Fortunately, melanoma can often be identified by its distinct visual characteristics. If you notice any suspicious changes in your moles or freckles, seeking professional medical attention is essential.

Book a Consultation With Us If:

You're Concerned About a Spot on Your Skin: While a consultation with a dermatologist is recommended for any suspicious mole or growth, this is especially true if you notice any warning signs of melanoma, such as:

  • Changes in an existing mole: Asymmetry, irregular borders, colour variation (black, brown, red, white, or blue), or a diameter larger than 6 millimetres (about the size of a pencil eraser).

  • A new mole that looks unusual: This could be a mole with any of the characteristics mentioned above, or one that appears different from your other moles.

  • A sore that doesn't heal: Melanoma can sometimes appear as a persistent wound that bleeds easily.

  • Redness or swelling around a mole: Inflammation or tenderness around a mole can be a cause for concern.

  • Itching: While itching isn't a specific indicator of melanoma, any unusual changes in sensation around a mole warrant a check-up.


You Have Risk Factors for Melanoma: Early detection is crucial. Consider a consultation if you have any of the following risk factors:

  • Fair skin: People with lighter skin tones are more susceptible to sun damage and melanoma.

  • History of sunburn: Having had multiple severe sunburns, especially in childhood, increases your risk.

  • A family history of melanoma: If close relatives have had melanoma, you may be at higher risk.

  • Multiple moles: Having more than 50 moles raises your risk.

  • Weakened immune system: Certain medical conditions or medications that suppress the immune system can increase melanoma risk.


You're Looking for a Skin Cancer Screening: Even if you don't have any specific concerns, regular skin cancer screenings by a dermatologist are vital for early detection and treatment. This is especially important for those with risk factors.

Mrs Jane Reid

Professional, personal and caring

Paul Culpan and his team have looked after me so well in every respect, from the pre-op admin and assessments, through the whole operation and continuing care and attention post-op. I felt so confident in the whole procedure and the amazing skill that Paul Culpan used to fit my new hip with the minimum damage to my muscles and nerves and with the tiniest of wounds.

The care and attention I received was always cheerful and reassuring. I am enormously grateful to have had my surgery in Blackheath Hospital. I have only one cavil, and that relates to very early morning interruptions for blood pressure checks, ( overnight staff completing their tasks), bright light turned on, just at the point when deep sleep was at last being enjoyed.
