Sentinel Healthcare provides a skin lump and bump check.
Do you have a lump or bump on your skin that is causing you concern?
Are you unsure what it is?
Would you like to have it looked at and receive useful information and advice?
We can help!
There are many types of lumps and bumps (lesions) that people have on their skin and they are usually harmless. However, any lesion that is causing you pain or discomfort, or you and your family concern, should be checked by a clinician. It may also be unsightly or can stop you wearing some types of clothing.
Our doctors can diagnose your lesion by a quick and simple examination.
We can give you advice on managing the lesion in the future and also treatment options if you would like it removed. Our doctors will also let you know if it needs urgent treatment and how you can receive it.
A skin lump and bump check with our clinicians costs just £49 and we will also let your GP know if we spot anything of concern. In the time allocated the doctor can examine up to 3 lesions (this does not include skin tags). Please ask at the time of booking if you have more than 3 lesions and we can offer you a double appointment for £89.
In addition, if you book a procedure after your lump and bump check then we can offer a 10% discount on the procedure price.
How does it work?
Our private treatments are carried out by highly experienced local GPs and Associate Clinicians. They have a specific interest in dermatology in general practice and extensive expertise in minor surgery. You will receive a single appointment, including consultation and the procedure.
The price is fixed and includes treatment at our modern clinics and includes all consulting and surgical facilities, nursing staff, consumables including surgical treatment room, surgical instrumentation, local anaesthetic, dressings, biopsy assessment of lesions where appropriate together with a follow-up letter.

BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT
We will send you a confirmation email or letter, directions to the clinic, your payment receipt and a consent form which you should read but which you do not need to sign until you are certain you wish to proceed with the removal of your lesion.
Your appointment includes a consultation with the clinician followed by the procedure, where it is agreed to proceed. The clinician will discuss your general health and medication. They will explain the procedure, whether there is a likelihood of recurrence and scarring, and how to prevent infection.
If you wish to proceed, you will sign a consent form. You will be awake throughout the operation and can ask questions. You will feel an initial sting from the local anaesthetic injection. The anaesthetic will wear off after a few hours and you can take paracetamol (not aspirin) if you have any mild discomfort.
Clinicians use a variety of techniques to remove skin lesions including excision and cautery. The procedure sometimes involves stitches or sutures. The clinician will advise you when you will need to make an appointment at your own surgery to have the stitches removed.
Although it is unlikely that your lesion represents a danger to your health, we may send it for examination and let you and your GP know the result as soon as we receive it. We will also send you a patient satisfaction questionnaire which we hope you will complete.
