Pre-Cancerous Lesions

A precancerous lesion is a change in some areas of your skin that carries the risk of turning into skin cancer. It is a preliminary stage of cancer.

Warts

Warts are caused by a viral infection in the top layer of skin. They are non-cancerous epidermal growths most often occurring on the hands and feet of an infected person.

Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune disease that appears on the skin. It occurs when the immune system sends out faulty signals that speed up the growth cycle of skin cells.

Molluscum Contagiosum

Molluscum contagiosum is a viral infection of the skin. It is caused by a DNA poxvirus called the Molluscum contagiosum virus or MCV.

Rashes

Healthy skin provides a barrier between the inside of the body and the outside environment. A rash is a change of the skin which affects its color, appearance or texture.

Hair Loss

Hair grows in cycles: anagen (living growing hair), catagen (in-between phase) and telogen (resting or falling-out phase). Recently a new phase, ketogen, has been recognised; this is when the follicle is empty, after the telogen hair has fallen out and before the anagen hair is visible on the scalp.
