What is mole mapping?
Mole mapping is a screening service using advanced digital technology to map moles on the body from head to toe. The results can be compared and identify changing or new moles over time which show signs of potential malignant melanoma, a common form of skin cancer.
How does it work?
We use the FotoFinder® Bodystudio® system, which users lasers to generate highly accurate and extremely detailed photographs all four sides of your body, including your palms and soles of your feet. Any moles that appear unusual, but merit further examination are photographed close-up using a special piece of technology called digital a photo-dermoscope. Your photos are then reviewed by one of our consultant dermatologists who will identify any suspicious lesions.
How often should I have a mole map?
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.
How much does it cost?
An initial mole map costs £145 and will take around 30 minutes. Future mole maps are £120 and take around 20 minutes.
