According to the company at the tender age of 10 she wrote in her school yearbook that one day she would become a skin doctor. Little did she know her words would one day become reality. Throughout her medical training she retained her interest in dermatology and obtained her medical degree at the University of Cape Town in 2009.

As many as one in five people will develop a form of skin cancer in their life. Dr Spengane offers screening, diagnosis and treatment of various kinds of skin cancer. Since the key to successful treatment of skin cancer is an early diagnosis, Dr Spengane emphasises the need for regular screenings and mole mapping, particularly for those who are at high risk of developing skin cancers.

While Dr Spengane is able to recognise most skin diseases with the naked eye, some skin conditions require a biopsy to get a diagnosis. This is done by means of a removing a small sample of skin in the affected area and sending the sample to a laboratory for histopathological analysis. The skin sample is then viewed under a microscope. The results of the biopsy are then sent to the dermatologist for clinical and histopathological correlation.
