Common treatment type I provide for basal cell carcinomas around the eye is removal of the lesion. I can either remove this myself, or I usually get a Mohs surgeon involved. Mohs surgeons are very specialised surgeons, usually dermatologists, and they remove the lesion. Under a local anaesthetic, so you're awake at the time. And they take the lesion out piece by piece until they know that the entire lesion is removed. They know that the margins are clear. This reduces the risk of recurrence of the lesion in this position.

There are a number of treatments once we've got diagnosis. And the diagnosis can be from clinical examination, the history, and sometimes special investigations such as biopsies. Once we have the diagnosis, the patients could be offered a number of treatments. And very superficial basal cell carcinomas can be treated by topical creams. Other skin cancers are more easily treated and effectively treated with surgery.

Scarring is always possible and people, generally different people, heal at different rates. Young people tend to heal quickly and produce not such good scars, but older people can take a little bit longer to heal but generally produce very good scars. If the tissue is under...if the skin is under tension, it tends not to produce a very good scar. We make sure that the skin incisions are in lines that aren't obvious. When you look at a face, there are areas that are light, and dark and there are obvious areas in between these that if we can hide the incisions, they produce a very good cosmetic result.

So it's really important to catch these tumours early when they are small because it's only a certain amount of eyelid, so we really don't want to remove too much eyelid because it makes the repair much more difficult. It is also possible if a tumour carries on growing, that it can actually invade around the eyeball and cause problems to the eye itself.

Skin cancer unfortunately is becoming one of the commonest cancers in this country. It can be extremely serious if you have a melanoma skin cancer. The other group of skin cancer is non-melanoma skin cancers and those are basal cell carcinomas and squamous cell carcinomas. They are all due to the sun which is why the incidence is increasing because of people travel abroad and thinning of the ozone level and as white people our skin is not really protected against the sun.

The main problem is sun exposure, so it's length of exposure because people are living much longer now. We see a lot of patients that are in their 80s and 90s that have had sun exposure for that length of time. People are much more aware now about the dangerous effects of the sun, but use...making sure that you don't get burned when you're a child, and also making sure that you're not out in bright sun between 12 and 3 when the sun is really strong. And also sensible things like wearing sun factors of at least 30 and protective hats are very good.

The misconceptions are, that often when patients told that they have a diagnosis of cancer, they automatically think the worst, and there is a lot of fear and they think they may not live very long. Skin cancers, the majority particularly the basal cell carcinomas and squamous cell carcinomas can be treated very easily, and when they're treated the patient is often cured. So it's very important that patients do come to a specialist early because if they leave the lesions long time, they can cause lots of problems, so treatment early is very important.

The majority of skin cancers, particularly on the face, can be treated under local anaesthetic and it is a relatively minor procedure that we have to take a few millimetres round the edge of the lesion to make sure we got it out. All of the lesions are sent to the laboratory to be assessed, make sure that there are no cells that are remaining. The defect, which is a little hole, is then either closed directly by pulling the skin together or if that's not possible, taking skin from somewhere else such as a skin graft or rotating the skin round, we do little flaps that give good cosmetic results.
