Skin cancer treatment

Using the latest medical technology and comprehensive health history reviews, our compassionate skin health experts are here to support you through the early detection and treatment of skin cancer.

Expert skin cancer detection and treatment

Our skin cancer detection begins with a meticulous skin check using a dermatoscope, a device that improves the detection of early skin cancers by about 30%. More than that, we evaluate your personal and family history, previous skin problems (if any), and risk factors such as immunosuppression, fair skin that burns easily, significant sun exposure, previous radiotherapy, or organ transplants. Based on these factors, we’ll determine your relative risk and recommend how frequently you should undergo skin checks. For more specialised care, a visiting skin doctor is also regularly available at our medical centre. Our treatment room is also equipped for minor skin surgeries, such as the removal of skin lesions.
