Skin Pathology Reports.

Suspect Skin Cancers do not always have to be sampled or cut off. The person who sprouts lots of superficial BCC may be considered for skin cancer cream – a decision not to be undertaken lightly because of the risk of missing a flat non-pigmented melanoma.

But over 98% of skin cancers do end up being sent for Pathology.

Skin cancer treatment is ultimately based on the pathology report.
