"Treatment for skin cancer"

About: Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital / Dermatology

(as the patient),

I was referred by my GP after already having a basal cell carcinoma removed nearly two years ago by MOHS surgery. I was really anxious this time as I thought it might be a squamous cell cancer.

I went to the Norfolk and Norwich hospital. Prior to my appointment having not slept for three days worrying. The staff in the clinic are so lovely and friendly, the doctor immediately put me at ease he had a nice sense of humour and the nurse was kind and friendly to.

thankyou, I have always found the staff on dermatology really lovely they really deserve some praise as I know they all work really hard. I have to go back for more surgery but at least I am not so worried as I trust them totally and I know they will do what is best for me.
