Online Skin Cancer Consults during COVID-19
Henderson Medical Centre’s Skin Cancer Practitioners are available and working remotely for online skin cancer consults during COVID-19 lockdown.
This is rather a stressful time for us all but of course certain services need to continue and one of those is skin cancer medicine, especially since we are all getting outside for our daily exercise!
We use DermEngine
to image moles and track change. There is the ability for you to send me images of skin lesions for assessment online which will be very helpful. The way to do this is through Molescope and the video on how to do this is below:
If you have any questions the FAQ section should be helpful:
During skin checks we use a couple of microscopes to check moles. These provides magnification, illumination and allows vision further into the lower levels of the skin. This is an essential tool in the assessment of suspicious skin lesions. Now obviously we can’t be there to use the scope for you so you will have to acquire one yourself. Below are a few options, and remember, this is an avenue we can continue long after COVID-19 lockdown ceases.
Currently $149 AUD if ordered through Dermengine
We hope you consider using this service we are providing to ensure the ongoing surveillance of your skin lesions. We are not currently doing any minor surgery at Henderson Medical Centre whilst in lockdown but I can still make referrals to the DHB Hospital Skin Cancer service.
