After treatment for non-melanoma skin cancer
What follow-up do I need?
Most patients who have had treatment for low-risk skin cancer will not need long-term follow up by their hospital consultant. The follow-up will be done by their GP.
If you have a higher-risk cancer, you will need to see your consultant for checks. This will involve a full skin check and possibly blood tests and scans.
Your follow-up appointments are also a chance to ask any questions you have, and to let your doctor know if you have new symptoms, are having any problems or finding it hard to cope.
If you are between check-ups and have a symptom or problem that is worrying you, contact your doctor or nurse specialist for advice, or to make an appointment, if necessary.
