Do you have a mole or lesion on your body which is causing you concern? Here at the Melanoma Fund one of our aims is to promote awareness of the importance of early detection of melanoma. More than likely it is fine, but for peace of mind, we run a limited number of FREE pop-up skin check clinics each year.

Professional Advice

queen victoria hospitalWe are proud to currently work with both Mr Samuel Orkar and Mr Siva Kumar from the MASCU (Melanoma & Skin Cancer Unit) at Queen Victoria Hospital in East Grinstead who carry out 10 minute spot check appointments with their team. These are not full body skin checks, but chance to have something suspicious checked, assessed and referred if required.

ladival sun protectionWe would like to thank Ladival for generously providing us with full sized bottles of their SPF30 & SPF50 sunscreen for our events. These are made available to everyone partaking in a skin check or visiting our stand, in return for a minimum donation to our charity.

Unable to attend?

Early detection and management of skin cancer or melanoma offers the best chance of cure, so if you are unable to secure a booking of your choice, why not get proactive and develop the habit of self-examination? This can alert you to changes in your skin and aid in the early detection of small problems that can grow. It should be done often enough to become a habit, but not so often as to feel like a bother. For most people once month is ideal, but ask your GP if you should do more frequent checks. For further information on how to PROTECTDETECT and PREVENT, please visit:
