Suspected Skin Cancer

Dedicated suspected skin cancer clinics are held every day, morning or lunchtime, at East Surrey, Crawley and Horsham Hospitals. Patients are referred by GPs under the two week rule. Cancer types, diagnosed and treated, are malignant melanomas, squamous cell carcinomas and basal cell carcinomas.

Treatments for skin cancer include photodynamic therapy, which takes place at East Surrey Hospital and Crawley and is led by our nurse specialists. Mohs surgery, which is microscopically controlled surgery used to treat common types of skin cancer, is undertaken by Dr Sandeep Cliff at St Helier’s Hospital, Carlshalton, and Sentinel lymph node biopsy at Royal Surrey Hospital, Guildford and St George’s Hospital, Tooting.
