What age should you get a skin cancer screening?

There is no national screening programme for skin cancer in the UK, but generally, you need to start getting screened for skin cancer in your 20s to 30s. If you’re exposed to the sun often, have a family history of skin cancer, or have moles, you should get it checked sooner. Ideally, you should have annual skin cancer screening as part of preventative care or to spot early signs of skin cancer.

What kind of screening is there for skin cancer?

Skin cancer screening involves a skin self-check by a patient and a full body skin exam by a healthcare provider. A full body skin exam is where a clinician carries out a thorough check of your body from head to toe. 

What can I expect from a full body skin cancer screening?

At the beginning of your full body skin cancer screening, you’ll be asked to remove all clothing and put on a medical gown. A doctor or dermatologist will then ask you if there are any moles or spots that worry you. The doctor will then proceed to examine every area of your body. These include your scalp, face, chest, back, arms, back of your legs, between your toes, and the soles of your feet. 

When carrying out the examination, a doctor will look out for moles, spots, birthmarks, and other pigmented areas that appear to be abnormal in colour, size, shape, or texture. They may use a bright light or magnification tool to take a closer look. If the clinician doesn’t find anything suspicious, the skin exam shouldn’t take longer than 10 to 15 minutes.

However, if the doctor suspects that a mole could be cancerous or precancerous, they’ll take a photograph of the mole for your medical records and perform a biopsy. Before doing so, they’ll clean the area of skin where the mole is located and inject a local anaesthetic. The doctor will then use a scalpel to obtain a skin sample. The process is painless, except for a slight tugging feeling, or pressure on the skin. 

The mole sample will be sent to a lab for analysis by a pathologist who will inspect it under a microscope to check for cancer cells. Your doctor should receive the results within a few days. If the mole turns out to be cancerous, your doctor will discuss next steps and suitable treatment options. 

Will I need to do anything to prepare for the test?

In preparation for skin cancer screening, it will help if you examine your skin so that you point out anything that concerns you. Using a hand mirror or full length mirror, check every area of your body including your scalp, face, chest, under your arms, and the soles of your feet. In particular, look out for:

  • New moles or growths that have appeared recently
  • Moles or growths that have changed over time in colour, shape, and size
  • Moles or growths that bleed, or take several weeks to heal
  • Moles or growths that itch
  • Moles or growths that are asymmetrical or have jagged edges
  • Redness or swelling around the border of the mole or growth
  • Moles or growths that are larger than 6 mm in diameter
