The aim of this site is to make you more aware of what can be done to prevent skin cancer, to help you locate any suspect moles and to encourage you to consult your GP or dermatologist.
Whilst your GP or dermatologist will be able to help identify melanoma, a definitive diagnosis can only be confirmed by a pathology report. The site has been developed by an expert board of dermatologists with support from La Roche-Posay
90% early melanomas detected on time can be cured. But this is constantly rising. Early detection of melanoma is therefore essential.
As skin and skin cancer experts, dermatologists are responsible for encouraging you to regularly check your skin and consult your GP if you observe a suspicious looking lesion.
MY-SKINCHECK.com is intended to help you monitor your moles inbetween visits to your doctor. It therefore represents a valuable aid for GP's in monitoring their patients, and allows you to better understand your skin in order to take better care of it. You can evaluate your personal risk risk level and learn how to monitor your skin. These interactive tools do not in any way replace the essential visits to your doctor.
MY-SKINCHECK.com will also advise good behaviour in the sun..
