MASCED is a national training programme for medical and healthcare practitioners by the national melanoma and skin cancer charity Skcin

As a Medical Facial Asesthetic Practitioner and Dental Professional I am in a position to recognise any suspicious lesions early.

I am trained to recognise and detect the early signs of skin cancer and to refer or signpost my patients for treatment.

The majority of skin cancers are preventable, however more than 225,000 skin cancers are diagnosed in the UK every year.

Rates of melanoma have risen more than any other cancer with 1 in 36 males and 1 in 47 females in the UK diagnosed in their lifetime.

Education is key to reducing these numbers.

Who is at risk?

Skin cancer does not discriminate against age, gender or skin type, anyone is at risk. All skin types can be damaged by ultraviolet radiation (UVR) with a risk of developing disease. Those at greater risk include:

  • Overexposure to UVR

  • Mature skin with accumulated UV damage

  • Sunbed users

  • Outdoor workers

  • Fair skin which burns easily

  • More than 100 moles on the body

  • Previous skin cancer/melanoma

  • Previous radiotherapy

  • Immune compromised

UVA rays penetrate deep into the skin and it is these rays which are most dangerous contributing to skin damage, ageing and skin cancer.

Wearing a high SPF daily is extremly important to protect the skin from UVA and UVB rays.
