Are moles common?

Close Icon

Most people have moles, we develop them from childhood up until around the age of 25. By adulthood, it is usual to have around 10-40 moles, but some people will develop moles later in life. Moles are natural growths on the skin that are usually black or brown and can appear anywhere on the skin, alone or in groups.

When should I get my moles checked out?

Close Icon

If you have noticed a change in size, shape or colour of an existing mole, you should get it checked out immediately. You can arrange a consultation with an experienced medical practitioner at sk:n who will be able to check the mole.

How will I know if my moles are suspicious?

Close Icon

Skin cancer starts as a new or changing freckle or mole. If detected early, treatment can be very effective hence why it is important to know your body and look out for changes, especially if you have a history of sunburn or sunbed use.

How much does mole mapping cost?

Close Icon

Mole Mapping starts from £145. You will need another check after six months, then just one appointment annually going forwards.

Is Mole Mapping effective?

Close Icon

This is the most comprehensive safeguard against skin cancer and is recommended for people with a large number of moles. Mole Mapping can provide additional reassurance if you do have a lot of moles or have extensive exposure to the sun or sunbeds.

How often should I have a Mole Map?

Close Icon

After an initial session with one of our experts we recommend a return visit after 6 months and then an annual mole mapping session going forward.

When to do skin cancer screening?

Close Icon

In the UK, there is no national screening programme for non-melanoma skin cancer, as this type of skin cancer usually develops in areas exposed to the sun, so it is easier to spot changes on the skin. If you do see any changes or unusual moles, it is advisable to speak to a medical professional as soon as possible.

At what age is skin cancer screening best?

Close Icon

In the UK, most people diagnosed with skin cancer are over the age of 50, so you are at a higher risk as you age. However you can develop skin cancer at any time in your life, particularly if you are classed as high risk. Remember early detection saves lives, so do not delay and act straight away.

What is the difference between melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer?

Close Icon

Non-melanoma refers to a group of skin cancers that slowly develop in the upper layers of the skin. This is the more common type and can usually be treated effectively if detected early. The two most common types are called basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC).

The less common skin cancer is melanoma, which can be more serious as it can spread to other organs in the body. Over 2000 people die every year from melanoma.

What is the best way to protect my skin from skin cancer?

The skin is the body’s biggest organ… so make sure you look after it. Our top tips for staying safe in the sun;

  • When the sun is strong, stay out of the sun from 11am-3pm and grab some shade
  • Wear a wide brimmed hat to cover your face
  • Wear good quality sunglasses to protect our eyes and the delicate skin around your eyes
  • Wear a good quality SPF (a minimum of factor 30 such as sk:n SPF30) that has both UVA and UVB protection – these are often referred to as ‘broad spectrum’. View our range of sunscreens.
  • Apply sunscreen at least 20 minutes before going out into the sun
  • Reapply every 2-3 hours, especially if swimming
