It’s your record… Use it!

Having a comprehensive medical record of your skin helps MoleMap’s specialists to keep a closer eye on your skin and lesions. Here’s some insight into how a baseline record helps:

Total Body Photography

Roughly 50% of all melanomas first appear on unmarked skin not in pre-existing moles. This is why MoleMap uses total body photography as standard in our full MoleMap procedures as this allows us to identify new and changing lesions that may indicate skin cancer.

Serial Monitoring

Studies have shown that microscopic monitoring of moles over time helps identify more melanomas. How? Basically because the universal truth about melanoma is change. Monitoring lesions over time enables our specialist dermatologists to identify subtle changes that might indicate the early signs of melanoma skin cancer.

Regular MoleMap surveillance to stay on top of your skin cancer risk is important to ensure we catch anything at the earliest possible stage.
