The Full Body MoleMap is our most comprehensive mole check service. The appointment includes a thorough skin and mole check by a melanographer. Full body photography is an essential part of our mole scan. This is where we take a set of approximately 24 images of your skin.
These are used as an historical reference, so we can track and monitor any new spots appearing on your skin over time. We use dermoscopic (that is, under the skin) imaging to capture close-up images of any suspicious or ‘at-risk’ moles. These are sent to one of our accredited dermatologists for further investigation and diagnosis.
Our Full Body MoleMap service gives you the added benefit (not to mention peace of mind) of unlimited free spot checks for 12 months following your appointment. This means no second guessing. If you notice a new or changing mole, you can visit our skin cancer clinic for a mole check.
Absolutely! A regular molescreen is the best way to detect skin cancer early, when it’s most treatable.
Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world. Yet we know that with early detection and treatment most skin cancers are curable. Our mole scan service provides a baseline record of the size, shape, and location of your moles. This means you can track and monitor any changes to your moles over time. If the slightest change is spotted it can be quickly assessed by a dermatologist.
While anyone can have a full body mole check, it’s particularly useful for people with a moderate to high risk of skin cancer.
You’ll get to meet one of our friendly melanographers, who are specially trained in melanoma detection and prevention. Your skin will be thoroughly checked from head to toe. Yes, you’ll need to get down to your underwear, so as not to miss a spot. But don’t worry, your modesty will be protected, and you’ll feel completely comfortable throughout your appointment.
Your moles will be digitally photographed to create a baseline of image for future reference. Any dubious-looking moles will be dermoscopically (under the skin) imaged and sent to an accredited dermatologist for further review.
See, there’s really no need to be nervous. A mole scan is routine, non-invasive and pain-less. Within the following week you’ll get your full report. No referral required (unless you’re aged under 16), which means less wait time and faster results.
The type of mole check you choose will depend on your skin cancer risk (you can check that with our quick Risk Quiz) and personal need. However, a whole body mole check is a good choice if you have:
