Contact us for a Basal Cell Carcinoma consultation
During your appointment at Clinica London, we’ll perform a full and thorough history. In addition, we’ll perform a detailed examination of the lesion, including examination by dermatoscopy. This involves looking at the lesion with a special instrument called a dermatoscope.
This consists of a magnifier and light source and allows in-depth inspection of skin lesions to help decide if it is benign or cancerous. We can examine all parts of the body, including the torso, limbs, face, neck, hands and feet with this method.
As part of the investigation and management of a basal cell carcinoma, we’ll perform a skin biopsy or skin excision in the minor procedure room at Clinica London. This involves injecting a local anaesthetic to the area and removing or sampling the area. We then send this to the histopathology laboratory for analysis. We would then bring you back to discuss all the results and what treatment you may need.
