The sun is a good source of Vitamin D, and we know the skin needs a certain amount of vitamin D to be healthy, however too much exposure to the sun can be detrimental and can result in the development of life-threatening conditions such as cancer.
If you have noticed any issues with your skin, or you are worried about marks on your skin such as moles changing shape or colour, or lumps forming anywhere on your body, visit your GP as soon as possible.
After an initial examination, your GP will refer you to a skin specialist or dermatologist if they suspect anything needs investigating further.
And if that referral is to the dermatology clinic here at Three Shires, you will be seen by our specialist dermatology team, where, after further examination and, if necessary, tests, we will be able to advise you of the next steps to help you on the road to recovery.
You can also contact us direct on 01604 801068 if you'd like to arrange a consultation or get a second opinion. Note that if you've been referred to us by your doctor or insurance company, we will be in contact with you to arrange an appointment.
