Mole Removal, Warts, Cysts, Lipomas and Skin Tags
Moles, Skin Tags, Cysts, Lipomas and Warty Growths are extremely common on the face and other parts of the body. Most of these skin growths are harmless, but they can be unsightly and embarrassing. Some moles and cysts may cause problems when combing hair, shaving, applying make-up or by catching on clothes. Funding restrictions means that surgery for these benign skin lesions is not routinely available on the NHS.

Basal Cell Skin Cancer, Actinic Keratosis
Stafford Skincare can diagnose and treat skin cancers and pre-cancers with creams, cryotherapy, Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) or skin surgery.

Actinic Keratosis is the name given to “sun damage” and looks like rough, red, scaling patches on the face and scalp. It is a type of pre-cancer, so is usually treated – either with creams, cryotherapy or Photodynamic Therapy (PDT). PDT is approved by NICE and gives excellent cosmetic results.

Photodynamic Therapy for Actinic Keratosis of the Scalp


Basal Cell Cancer is the most common skin cancer and can be treated by a variety of methods including surgery, radiotherapy, Photodynamic Therapy (PDT), cryotherapy and creams, depending on its type, size and site. Squamous Cell Carcinoma and Malignant Melanoma are more serious types of skin cancers, but are less common. Successful treatment depends on early and accurate diagnosis.

Dermatologists are trained to detect and treat skin cancers. Dermoscopy is a specialist technique where an experienced Dermatologist examines a mole or other skin lesion with a Dermatoscope. Using Dermoscopy, a Dermatologist can give reassurance that either a mole is harmless, or an abnormality can be detected at an early stage. Dermoscopy is sometimes called Mole Screening.

In the NHS, dermatologists work in multi-disciplinary Skin Cancer Teams, and follow rigorous standards for the diagnosis and management of skin cancers. Most people don’t realise that about 50% of people referred to an NHS dermatology clinic is for suspected skin cancer. This means that dermatologists are usually highly skilled in surgical techniques.

After her appointment as a Consultant Dermatologist, Dr. Anne Ward became the Lead Clinician for Skin Cancer Services for Mid Staffordshire (1996 – 2005). During this time, she raised the standard of care for skin cancer patients such that her Skin Cancer Team was ranked first in two consecutive West Midlands NHS Peer Reviews. Dr. Anne Ward continues to work closely with Consultant Plastic Surgeons linked to a Skin Cancer MDT, to provide a multi-disciplinary approach to skin cancer management.
