Mole mapping is a screening service for those at risk of or concerned about skin cancer. The service is intended to detect malignant melanoma at the earliest possible stage when it is curable with relatively minor surgery.
Mole Mapping combines medical expertise with the latest digital technology to be able to detect suspicious moles early. Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the UK and early detection saves lives.
Mole Mapping is a screening service using advanced digital technology to map moles on the body from head to toe. The results can be compared to identify changing or new moles over time, including any which show signs of potential malignant melanoma.
Any moles that appear unusual or require further examination are photographed close-up using specialist technology called a dermatoscope, this is done by consultant dermatologist & MOHs (derm) surgeon Dr Rajpara.
If mole removal is required, this can also be carried out in clinic and all skin lesions are sent away for histology Testing.
