Abstract

Aesthetic nurses observe and assess the skin on a daily basis and therefore need to have an awareness of recognising skin lesions or moles that may be suspicious. In addition, aesthetic nurses have an important patient education role and can advise individuals who present to their clinic on checking their skin lesions and moles, skin self-examination, sun protection, and risk factors/prevention of skin cancer. This article aims to inform and update aesthetic nurses' knowledge on skin cancer. The article will cover recognition of skin cancer and patient education, including sun safety and self-examination. Skin cancer treatment will be covered in the second article in this series.
