What makes our mole check service different?

Dermatologist Led: every Mole Check patient is seen by one of our consultant Dermatologists and not a nurse.

•Long Term Monitoring: our Dermatologist led approach allows us to spot even the subtlest of changes and moles over time.

Dermoscopy: any mole that a Dermatologist is concerned about will be examined on the spot under a high powered dermatology microscope.

Treatment: we offer same day removal of worrisome moles. The sample will be sent for histology; to the laboratory to get tested.

Plastic Surgeons: for the removal of bigger or deeper moles, or those in more visible places, a Consultant Plastic Surgeon can undertake the procedure to minimise any scarring risk.

Moles are often harmless, but they can be irritating and catch on clothing and jewellery alike. Occasionally, they can be a sign of cancer. The NHS and NICE guidelines recommend having your moles checked by an expert every six months; at a minimum. If you’ve had a mole removed, it’s every three months.

The good news is that skin cancers from moles that are found and removed early are almost always curable and early diagnosis matters. A person with a melanoma of less than 0.75mm thick can expect to have a 95% cure rate. 52% of the melanoma we find are discovered by monitoring and identifying the tiniest of changes each time you come in with our mole-mapping service. Changes can be monitored both externally and internally for signs that aren’t visible to the naked eye.
