Your complete mole check and mole-mapping programme.
A Full Body MoleMap is our most comprehensive service - the ultimate skin check. It includes a thorough, head-to-toe skin and mole check + full body mole-mapping to track changes in your skin over time + EarlyDetect precision screening of all high-risk moles. Simply put, a Full Body MoleMap means full body reassurance.
With a Full Body MoleMap, every high-risk mole and spot on your body is thoroughly identified, mapped and monitored over time using our unique EarlyDetect precision screening at our skin cancer clinics. Why? So we can spot melanoma early – when it’s most treatable.
1. You’re considered moderate to high risk
A Full Body MoleMap is suitable for everyone, but essential if you have a lot of moles or freckles, fair or sun damaged skin, a family or personal history of melanoma, and/or an outdoor lifestyle.
2. You haven’t been to MoleMap before
A Full Body MoleMap is ideal for first-time patients as it includes our ongoing mole-mapping programme, so we can check and compare any changes in your skin at later appointments.
Melanoma can appear at any time and the risk increases as you age1. That’s why we combine our proven mole check and mole-mapping system with skin cancer expertise to detect the early signs of melanoma and other skin cancers. Because melanoma is beatable, if it’s detected early enough2.
Melanoma is the most serious form of skin cancer and grows below the skin’s surface very quickly if left untreated3. That’s why our EarlyDetect precision mole screening technology identifies all moles and spots with high-risk features, plus we monitor every mole at every follow-up appointment.
A Full Body MoleMap is essential if you’re higher risk, have a lot of moles or if you or a family member have had melanoma. If you’re low to moderate risk (check your risk), have one or two moles that need checking, or want a lower-cost option, you might prefer a MoleMap Skin Check.

Who should have a Full Body MoleMap?
How accurate are we?
At MoleMap we take the early detection of melanoma very seriously. By combining our technology during your skin cancer check with the skills of expert Dermatologists we are doing everything possible to accurately detect melanoma skin cancer at the earliest possible stage. After all, the earlier we can detect melanoma, the greater your chances of a full recovery.
The initial consultation with a melanographer takes one hour. This enables us to capture digital images of all your visible lesions that are then assessed by our specialists. Why? Because we take your concerns seriously so by the time you leave us we want you to feel assured and confident that we have captured all relevant information for our expert dermatologists to make an accurate assessment.
Will I have to wait long to get my assessment?
In Australia, there can be long waiting lists to see a specialist. Visiting us provides almost instant access to a Dermatologist opinion. MoleMap enables you to act quickly, putting you more in control of your situation.
What if I am still concerned after my visit to MoleMap?
MoleMap takes patient concerns seriously so if you are still concerned about a lesion after your initial appointment you can come back, free of charge* for another Dermatologist opinion. Occasionally the Dermatologist will also ask to do a free three month review of some lesions. This is entirely normal – they are just ensuring that they are making the correct diagnosis and don’t want to surgically remove lesions unless they need to.
What is your main point of difference?
MoleMap is not just a point in time assessment of your skin but a lifelong partnership that helps you avoid the tragic effects of melanoma skin cancer. All moles imaged are encrypted and stored away in a central server and act as a baseline or reference point for ongoing MoleMap assessments.
What is a Melanographer?
A Melanographer is a registered nurse who is specially trained to detect skin cancer. All Melanographers are female to provide maximum comfort and dignity to our patients during their visit to our clinic. They are passionate about what they do and will pass on plenty of information and useful tips about skin cancer and how to reduce your odds of getting skin cancer in the future. This helps put you in control of the risks posed by skin cancer.
