Skin Check

Comprehensive skin check services at MoleMap Australia

A skin cancer check you can trust

At MoleMap skin cancer clinics, we don’t just check your skin—we double check it. An experienced melanographer performs a thorough head-to-toe skin check. Any suspicious moles are photographed and sent for dermatologist diagnosis. Because two sets of expert eyes mean more accurate results. No referral needed.

“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.”

Got a question about skin checks?

Is a skin check up worth the money?

Plus Iconminus Icon

One Australian is diagnosed with melanoma every 30 minutes. Early detection is the best chance of a positive outcome.  Our SkinCheck includes a thorough head-to-toe assessment of your moles, with any ‘at-risk’ lesions imaged and sent for dermatologist diagnosis. If you’re worried about a suspicious mole, visit a MoleMap clinic near you for a quick and trusted diagnosis.

How long does a MoleMap skin check take?

Plus Iconminus Icon

At MoleMap, our skin check service takes approximately 15-20 minutes to complete.

What’s the difference between a skin check and mole check?

Plus Iconminus Icon

Our skin check service provides a thorough head-to-toe melanoma check with a trained melanographer. (This is a registered nurse who is trained in skin cancer detection). Any suspicious moles are imaged and sent to a dermatologist for further assessment and diagnosis. This type of skin check is a good choice if you have:

  • A small number of moles
  • You’ve spotted an unusual mole and want it checked out quickly

In comparison, our mole check includes all the features of our skin check but with the added benefit of total body photography and proactive individual mole plotting and monitoring. This means you have a baseline of images to track and compare at future skin checks. As part of our Full Body MoleMap, you also get  unlimited free skin checks for 12 months.

Who should have a skin cancer check up?

Plus Iconminus Icon

Anyone who is concerned about cancer should have a skin cancer check. MoleMap’s skin check is particularly suited to people who are at low to medium risk and want peace of mind, or have spotted a suspicious mole and want it checked out fast. You can check your skin cancer risk here.

What happens if a suspicious mole is detected?

Plus Iconminus Icon

If a suspect mole is spotted during your visit at one of our cancer skin clinics, it will be imaged by our melanographer. All images are sent to a dermatologist for further examination and diagnosis. Your report will include the dermatologist's diagnosis along with any images and advice on the next steps - like having a skin check up if further action is required.

Why is it important to get regular skin checks?

Plus Iconminus Icon

Regular skin checks are essential for the early detection of new or changing moles. Because melanoma can be difficult to detect with the naked eye, we recommend booking a yearly skin cancer check up at your nearest MoleMap skin cancer clinic. Our melanographers are trained in skin cancer detection and perform hundreds of skin cancer checks, which makes them highly experienced in spotting the smallest changes.

Are at-home skin checks important?

Plus Iconminus Icon

Absolutely. Australia has one of the highest rates of melanoma in the world. At-home skin checks (alongside professional skin cancer checks) can help you spot cancer early. This is vital, as 95% of skin cancers are curable if detected and treated early.

How do you perform an at-home skin check?

Plus Iconminus Icon

Firstly, it’s very helpful to understand the signs of melanoma. This will help you to know what exactly it is you’re looking for during your at-home skin check.

Secondly, make sure you do your skin check in a well lit room with a full-length and a hand-help mirror close by. This will make it easier to spot any new or changing moles.

Look in the full length mirror to check the front and back of your body, as well as both sides of your body. Women should also raise each arm to check under their breasts.

Examine your upper arms and forearms. Check the palms and back of your hands, including your fingernails. Closely check your legs, feet, soles, toenails and in between your toes. (This is where the handheld mirror comes in useful!)

Carefully look over your face, neck, ears and scalp. You may need to ask a family member or friend to help.

At MoleMap, we rec­om­mend doing a DIY skin check at least every three months. You can also reduce your risk by  booking in for an expert skin check or mole check every 6 to 12 months - depending on your skin cancer risk.
