According to the Canadian Cancer Society, skin cancer is Canada’s most commonly diagnosed type of cancer, with over 80,000 new cases each year. Like all cancers, early detection is critical for successful treatment.

A dermatologist will complete a visual exam on a mole, freckle, or spot that you are concerned with. Exams will take about 10 minutes.

It is important to regularly examine our skin for unusual moles or spots and consult a healthcare professional if we notice anything concerning. Self-checks and screening from a dermatologist are painless, only take a few minutes, and save lives. The National Capital Skin Disease Foundation supports the Dermatology Division of The Ottawa Hospital and dermatology initiatives in Eastern Ontario. Our latest initiative is The Mohs Skin Cancer Surgery Expansion Campaign. Mohs surgery is highly specialized and effective in treating skin cancer. Unfortunately, Ottawa has a grave shortage of services to treat skin cancer promptly and appropriately. With the help of the Ottawa community, we will decrease wait times and increase surgical services by recruiting a second Mohs Surgeon and increasing clinic hours.
