Our partner clinics undergo MoleMap accredited training. Using our proven skin surveillance system, they deliver the same high-quality report and dermatologist diagnosis.

Skin cancer is the most common cancer in Australia

Australia’s UV rates are among the high­est in the world. Every lit­tle bit of sun expo­sure con­tributes to your overall skin cancer risk. That’s why it’s essential to have a skin check every year. The earlier skin cancer is spotted, the greater likelihood of a successful outcome.

At Essendon skin cancer clinic, we don’t just check. We double check. You get a thorough head-to-toe mole check. Any suspicious lesions are imaged and sent for dermatologist diagnosis. That’s two sets of expert eyes for the highest accuracy.

“At my annual full body skin exam, the melanographer found a small pin-sized spot on my ear and recommended I have it examined further. It turned out to be cancerous. If it wasn’t for MoleMap, it would have gone unnoticed.”

Your questions, answered

How much is a mole check in Essendon?

At Essendon skin cancer clinic, the cost of our skin check services depends on whether you opt for a SkinCheck or Full Body MoleMap. The Full Body MoleMap is a thorough skin assessment with full body imaging, proactive monitoring of 'potentially at risk' moles, and free spot checks for 12 months. SkinCheck is intended for people at low risk or who have spotted a new or changing mole. There's the option to have it with or without full body imaging. For an overview of our services including prices and what exactly is included, see our full table of services.

How long does an Essendon skin check take?

The length of your appointment will depend on the skin check service you book.

Which parts of my body will be examined during the skin cancer check?

As part of your Essendon mole check, we’ll examine your skin from head to toe. This is so that we don’t miss any poten­tial skin can­cers. You’ll need to undress down to your under­wear. Don’t worry though, our Melanog­ra­phers are expe­ri­enced at helping you feel comfortable. They’ll even give you a snazzy gown to wear. Feeling a little shy is a small price to pay for peace of mind!

What is a skin cancer clinic?

Skin cancer clinics perform skin checks, mole checks, biopsies, and skin cancer treatment. Typically, skin cancer clinics are led by GPs with additional training in skin cancer detection. At MoleMap Essendon, our skin cancer clinic is run by melanog­ra­phers—reg­is­tered nurs­es who are trained in the ear­ly detec­tion of melanoma and oth­er skin can­cers. Here, we check moles day in, day out. We are highly experienced at picking up the smallest changes, which could otherwise go unnoticed. We also work with accredited dermatologists—because two sets of expert eyes are better than one. If we detect a suspicious mole, it’s imaged and sent for dermatologist review—giving you complete confidence in your diagnosis.
