Skin clinic at Seaton Hospital League of Friends’ event detects five cases of cancer
Attending Seaton Hospital League of Friends’ summer fayre could turn out to be a life-saver for some.
Dr Joe Pitt, dermatology consultant and local GP, ran a free mole check clinic at the town centre event – and was able to diagnose five skin cancers.
Two of them required further urgent assessment.
Dr Pitt was using his new dermatoscope, which was funded by the League of Friends.

He said: “It was shown to be of enormous value as I was able to diagnose five skin cancers that day and I was also able to reassure a large number of patients with harmless benign lesions they had been worried about.”
League manager Lycia Moore said: “I would like to thank all our volunteers for all the hard work they put in to make our fayre a success and also everyone who supported our event on the day. Also a special thank you to Temptations, who provided refreshments for all our volunteers.”
