Good to know

Are you concerned about a mole on your skin? santé24 or the OnlineDoctor can assess whether further investigation is required. Since the law does not permit potential skin cancer to be diagnosed solely through telemedicine, the doctor will recommend a physical examination by a dermatologist if there is any cause for concern.
