We believe that there is no substitute for a full body mole check. Snap shots of individual moles may provide reassurance, but these should be combined with full body skin checks.

2) Full body mole check and detailed dermoscopic examination
- A dermatoscope uses a high quality lens for 10 to 14-times magnification and a lighting system which enables visualization of subsurface structures and patterns. Dermatoscope helps dermatologists to distinguish benign from malignant (cancerous) lesions, especially in the diagnosis of melanoma - the most serious skin cancer. Pattern recognition and specialist training in dermatology and dermoscopy allows our clinical staff to differentiate benign (harmless) from dysplastic (abnormal) moles and melanoma (skin cancer). This allows early removal of dangerous moles and prevents unnecessary removal of benign moles.

- You will receive a password protected USB drive with photographs of the moles
- Mole removal is covered by all insurers. Self pay prices will be discussed in clinic and depends on number of moles removed and analysed by specialist pathologist.
