Face

This is on my partners left cheekbone. He has had it a while, it’s sore and dry. He describes it as feeling prickly, like there’s something in it. He’s a builder, and has work outdoors for 40+ years. I’ve tried to encourage him to go to the drs but he’s stubborn!!

Re: Face

Dear Janiejjj

I'm not sure if you were meant to attach a picture? Builders unfortunately have one of the highest risks of developing skin cancers. Therefore any new or changing lesion should almost definitely be checked by a doctor. I would suggest making an appointment with your GP who will refer to dermatology if they feel the lesion required further assessment. Most skin cancers are treatable and curable if caught early- I would therefore urge he gets it looked at.

Re: Face

Thank you, have attempted to attach picture again! Hopefully it will be there this time.
I will try and convince him to get it checked.
Thank you.
