Skin cancer at The MW Clinic London
  • Skin cancers are cancers that develop from skin cells. The most common types of skin cancers are basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma depending on the cell types they originate from.
  • Skin cancers can appear as a new growth on the skin or as a change in an existing mole or freckle. It is typically caused by cumulative DNA damage from excessive exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun or from artificial sources, such as tanning beds.
  • Treatment for skin cancer typically involves the surgical removal of the cancerous cells. In some cases, radiation therapy or chemotherapy may be necessary to treat the cancer.
  • Dr Wong will discuss all treatment options with the patient and recommend the most appropriate course of action based on their individual needs and preferences.
  • At The MW Clinic, we believe that patient education and support are crucial components of successful skin cancer management. We provide our patients with information about the condition, including its causes, symptoms, and treatment options. We also offer ongoing support and guidance to help patients manage their symptoms and maintain healthy skin.
