Full Body and Spot Checks

Dr. Steve Karagiannis will look at your mole(s) or skin lesion(s) on your body using a Dermatascope – a device with polarized and non-polarized light and a magnifying lens that allows viewing of intricate structures invisible to the naked eye. If a lesion looks suspicious then it is photographed using the MoleMate Skin imaging System and its structures more closely examined. If it is deemed to be suspicious then arrangements will be made to have it removed. Dr Steve usually excises the lesion himself unless they are on certain body parts such as the nose, ears or soles of the feet where you will then be referred to a plastic surgeon. All lesions are sent for histological examination to the Mater Hospital and results take approximately ten to fourteen days to return.

Suspicious lesions on sensitive areas such as the nose, ears, face as well as larger lesions are generally excised by the very experienced Plastic Surgeon Mr Fuan Chan. We have a close working relationship and he generally tends to see referrals from SkinCheck quite quickly.

Price: dependent on number of employees involved in screening and location.

In September 2016, Dr Steve completed Corporate Screening for a large Pharmaceutical Company in Dublin.

307 employees with no particular concerns were screened over six non consecutive days
22 suspicious lesions in 18 employees were detected
7 were confirmed skin cancers called Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC)
2 were pre-cancerous lesions called Actinic Keratosis
The rest were either various benign lesions or are still waiting histological diagnosis.
In summary 1 in 17 employees screened were noted to have a lesion that required further action.
