Skin cancer

About

Our skin cancer clinics offer a rapid diagnostic and treatment service for melanoma and squamous cell carcinoma. Where possible, treatment for these types of skin cancer will be offered on the same day as the clinic appointment.

We also treat a large number of basal cell carcinomas, the most common form of skin cancer.

Prevention

Almost uniquely for the NHS, we use a mole mapping machine to screen patients at high risk of melanoma, assisting in earlier diagnosis.

Treatments we offer

  • Skin surgery
  • Topical therapy
  • Cryotherapy
  • Daylight photodynamic therapy

Our colleagues in plastic surgery perform advanced skin surgery where needed for skin cancer treatment. Our colleagues in oncology offer the following skin cancer treatments:

  • Radiotherapy
  • Chemotherapy
  • Immunotherapy for advanced melanoma
  • Targeted therapy for advanced melanoma

Clinical trials and research

We are one of the top recruitment hospitals in the country to research trials to help us find the best ways to treat cancer. You will be offered the opportunity to participate in a trial if there is one available that suits your disease.
