The Sunday People yesterday looked at how to spot ‘killer moles’, with expert advice from Dr Ross Perry.
Summer may be over, but the article is a timely reminder not to neglect important skin and mole checks. Although most are harmless, some may develop into malignant melanoma, a form of skin cancer. That’s why keeping an eye on moles and freckles is important all year round.
The feature invited Cosmedics’ London Mole Removal Centre founder, Dr Ross Perry, to provide his expert advice. Ross told the Sunday People:
“The rates of skin cancer are ever increasing and have doubled in the last 20 years.
“We need to be vigilant all the time as this is not just a summer illness or condition, it can occur at any time of the year.
“It’s not that they are more prevalent in the summer, we’re just more aware of them when everyone is in shorts, t-shirts or bikinis.”
Mole Checking at Home
Dr Ross Perry recommends checking every couple of months at home. It doesn’t need to take more than a couple of minutes for a full top to toe check for any odd-looking blemishes, new moles or unusual/changing lesions.
He encourages people to trust their instincts about what is abnormal and if in any doubt, see the GP – even if they’ve checked it before.
