Mole Removal, Warts, Cysts and Skin Tags
Moles, Skin Tags, Cysts and Warty Growths are extremely common on the face and other parts of the body. Most of these skin growths are harmless, but they can be unsightly and embarrassing. Some moles and cysts may cause problems when combing hair, shaving, applying make-up or by catching on clothes. Funding restrictions means that surgery for these benign skin lesions is not routinely available on the NHS.

Simple benign skin lesions can easily be removed in a single visit to Stafford Skincare. The type of lesion that can be removed in the “See and Treat” service includes raised moles on the face or body, scalp cysts, warts and skin tags. “See and Treat” procedures are only available at the Lichfield Clinic. All procedures are carried out by Dr. Anne Ward, an experienced consultant dermatologist.

Diagnosis and Treatment of Skin Cancers and pre-Cancers
Stafford Skincare can diagnose and treat skin basal cell skin cancers and pre-cancers with creams, cryotherapy, Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) or skin surgery.

Actinic Keratosis is the name given to “sun damage” and looks like rough, red, scaling patches on the face and scalp.

Photodynamic Therapy for Actinic Keratosis of the Scalp


Bowen’s Disease is usually found on the lower leg, and can look like a patch of dry skin which persists in spite of using moisturisers.

Basal Cell Cancer is the most common skin cancer and can be treated by a variety of methods including surgery, radiotherapy, Photodynamic Therapy (PDT), cryotherapy and creams, depending on its type, size and site.

Dermatologists are trained to detect and treat skin cancers. Dermoscopy is a specialist technique where an experienced Dermatologist examines a mole, suspected skin cancer or other skin lesion with a Dermatoscope. Dermoscopy is sometimes called Mole Screening.

In the NHS, dermatologists work in multi-disciplinary Skin Cancer Teams, and follow rigorous standards for the diagnosis and management of skin cancers. After her appointment as a Consultant Dermatologist, Dr. Anne Ward became the Lead Clinician for Skin Cancer Services for Mid Staffordshire (1996 – 2005). During this time, she raised the standard of care for skin cancer patients such that her Skin Cancer Team was ranked first in two consecutive West Midlands NHS Peer Reviews. Dr. Anne Ward continues to work closely with Consultant Plastic Surgeons linked to a Skin Cancer MDT, to provide a multi-disciplinary approach to skin cancer management.
