Monitoring Change

Over time our skin changes, it ages. Our moles and other blemishes also change. We often don’t notice many of these subtle changes, but they are happening.

To detect melanoma early, when it is most curable, we must keep an eye on any subtle changes in our skin. Melanoma detection does not stop at the first skin check. Having a single skin examination is a step in the right direction to identifying melanoma, but because melanoma can appear at any time it is important to track changes in your skin.

Tracking moles over time helps to identify and address any changes before they potentially become something sinister. This is where photographic records are a huge help; they take away the question, “has it changed?”

This is where the full power of MoleMap kicks in.

Are you monitoring your skin?
