Mole Check

Moles, skin spots and lesions grow, change shape and disappear throughout our lifetimes, and so often, it can be difficult to tell the difference between an innocent skin spot and something more malignant. Signs of skin cancer and melanoma can be very subtle, so having a doctor with the training and experience to tell the difference is vital to an accurate diagnosis.

The sooner a skin cancer is identified and treated, the sooner a treatment and management plan can be implemented to ensure positive patient outcomes. Don’t delay booking an appointment if you are concerned about any spots or lesions; the sooner treatment can be provided, the sooner you may have peace of mind.

Getting A Mole Check With SunDoctors

SunDoctors Skin Cancer Clinics
Doctor giving a Mole Check
We are equipped with the latest technology and resources to provide the best possible treatment for patients. Doctors at our specialised clinics are experts in comprehensive mole checks and effective diagnosis, giving you exceptional service through highly experienced medical professionals.

Our clinics are dedicated solely to detecting and treating skin cancer, meaning that we offer skin cancer checks, pathology and treatment to you all under one roof. This, combined with the fact that we do not require a referral, means that our services are generally quicker and more efficient than going to a regular GP.

Getting A Mole Check With SunDoctors

A regular mole or skin check is a simple habit that can diagnose a skin spot before it becomes something more dangerous. Our mole checks are simple and efficient and often take under 15 minutes.

The mole check will begin with the skin cancer doctor examining your skin under a magnifying lamp, noting areas of interest. They will then use a dermatoscope, or computerised dermatoscopy if necessary, to thoroughly examine possible signs of cancer for early detection.

Total body photography might be recommended to patients who fall into the high-risk category for skin cancer, such as those with fair skin, a family history of different skin cancers, or many moles on their bodies.

Simple treatments will often be performed during the session, however, more complex surgical excisions will be booked for another appointment.

Most checks will be done with the underwear on as skin cancer is rare in areas of the body such as the breasts, genitals, and buttocks; however, skin cancer in these areas is possible, and if you believe that you have a suspicious-looking mole, you may request to have it examined as a part of your skin check.
