Our North Shore team of leading Dermatologists and Melanographers have been detecting and diagnosing melanoma and other skin cancers for over two decades. Mole checks and skin cancer checks are all we do, and we do them thoroughly.
The MoleMap North Shore skin clinic located at Northcote combines leading technology and skin cancer expertise to diagnose melanoma and other skin cancers.
Are your spots changing?
One of the key advantages of having a MoleMap is that we create a medical record of your skin check that enables our dermatologists to look for subtle changes in moles over time – changes that could indicate melanoma skin cancer.
However, the utilisation of dermoscopic ‘serial monitoring’ of the lesion over a period of one year picked up changes in its structure that warranted this lesion being excised. It was diagnosed as an in situ melanoma (very early, non-invasive stage).
Now that you have an existing MoleMap medical record, any mole check follow-up visits will enable us to keep an eye out for subtle changes that could indicate early melanoma. This technique also confirms when moles are stable and this helps keep unnecessary removal of unharmful lesions to a minimum.
