Dr. Antony Downs and Dr. Nigel de Souza, GP partner in association with the Lions Club, held a Mole Check event on Saturday 13th July at Coleridge Medical Centre, Ottery St Mary near Exeter in aid of Cancer Research UK.

160 people were seen and over £1600 was raised for Cancer Research UK in one morning. It was a fantastic team effort helping to raise awareness and a significant sum towards the fight against skin cancer.

The team put in a great deal of work to host the event but it was very much worth it, with lots of appreciative patients, and a number of skin cancers identified which are now on course for treatment.

A big thank you to everyone involved and to all those who attended to support this worthwhile event.

If you have any concerns about your skin or a suspicious mole please get it checked by a medical professional. Look out for a mole which changes progressively in shape, size and/or colour. You can check your moles by learning the ABCDE of moles. This covers a range of features that can help you spot if a mole is becoming cancerous.
