Dr. Jean Gallagher now offers full body skin checks.
Dr. Gallagher has a keen interest in dermatology and has completed post graduate qualifications in dermatology - the Diploma in Practical Dermatology from Cardiff University and also a Certificate in Dermoscopy from Cardiff University.
Dermoscopy is a non-invasive, widely used tool to help trained clinicians recognise early melanoma and other skin cancers.
In trained users it has been shown to improve the recognition of melanoma and reduce unnecessary excisions of benign lesions.
The full body skin check will involve detailed skin examination and referral for excision of any suspicious lesions, as well as general education about patient self examination.
If you have private health insurance we have a plastic surgeon who runs a regular clinic in Ranelagh Medical who can provide the excision service.
