Check For Cancerous Moles
Using an online dermatology services means flexibility and instant access to Dermatologists. This is key when checking for cancerous moles on the body. Malignant Melanoma is one of the most common forms of cancer to cause death even though it accounts for very few cancer cases.
If spotted early, survival rates for melanoma are as high as 95%. We suggest giving our quiz a go to see if you can spot the cancerous mole. It’s worth noting that although survival rates are high once spotted, it is very important to check your moles and use a dermatology service like ours if you’re concerned. The key danger with melanoma is that it spreads. This means it could potentially reach your vital organs, lymph nodes and lungs. This can accelerate the disease rapidly.
