Skin Lesions

We have an interest in skin lesions and due to our large senior patient profile , we have a high exposure to skin cancers like basal (BCC) and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). We use a Cryopro apparatus to freeze actinic keratoses or warts, and also have a cauterization machine that can be used if indicated , although it is more invasive and requires the use of local anaesthetic . If diagnosis are unsure, we can do a punch biopsy or excision biopsy in order to obtain a histological diagnosis. We have a good working relationship with dermatologists or plastic surgeons, that we use for referrals.
