How keeping a record of your skin helps MoleMap detect skin cancer
Having a comprehensive medical and photographic record of your skin helps MoleMap’s specialists keep a closer eye on your skin and lesions. Here’s some insight into how it helps:
Total Body Photography
Did you know that roughly 50% of all melanomas first appear on unmarked skin i.e. not in pre-existing moles? The use of Total Body Photography helps our Dermatologists identify new lesions that might indicate skin cancer.
Serial monitoring of moles
Studies have shown that microscopic monitoring of moles over time helps identify more melanomas. Why? Basically because the universal truth about melanoma is change. Monitoring lesions over time enables the Dermatologist to identify subtle changes that might indicate the early signs of melanoma skin cancer.
The importance of having regular MoleMaps to help keep on top of your melanoma risk cannot be overstated. So, if its been a while since you last had a MoleMap or you’re concerned about a mole or lesion then don’t delay being checked by the experts in the field of melanoma skin cancer.
