Dr. Jean Gallagher in Ranelagh Medical now offers full body skin checks.

Dr. Gallagher has a keen interest in dermatology and has completed a post graduate qualification in Dermatology – the Diploma in Practical Dermatology from Cardiff University and also a Certificate in Dermoscopy from Cardiff University and will use the Dermatascope to assess any worrying moles or skin lesions.

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.
