Leading the way in melanoma detection

Among world experts there is much discussion about the best practice for the early detection of melanoma. The two main tools clinicians have to detect changes in the skin are:

  • Serial Monitoring – this is where clinical and dermoscopic images are taken of lesions (moles etc.) and the images are repeated at 3, 6 or 12 months. These images are then compared and change in the lesion characteristics can indicate early stage melanoma.
  • Total Body Photography – this is where photographs are taking of all of your skin (usually a series of 16-20 images). These are reviewed over time to note the change in size of any lesions along with the appearance of any new lesions.

How do they compare?

Current research indicates that melanoma presents in existing lesions (moles) approximately 50% of the time while the other 50% are found as new lesions appearing in clear skin (i.e. not in an existing mole or spot). Serial Monitoring is highly effective at monitoring and detecting change in existing lesions but is not designed to detect new lesions. For those appearing as new lesions there is no argument that a mole check usingTotal Body Photography will detect these changes

Serial Monitoring or Total Body Photography… or Both?

The short answer to this is BOTH. Serial Monitoring gives assurance of early detection of any changes in your existing moles while a mole check Total Body Photography allows us to see any new lesions that may have appeared between visits.

For these reasons, MoleMap has designed its full MoleMap service to provide both Serial Monitoring and Total Body Photography. When this is added to a full body mole check, skin check and lesion diagnosis by a specialist Dermatologist, MoleMap is providing the highest level of care to our patients.
