Moles are growths on the skin that are usually brown or black, they can appear anywhere on the skin, alone or in groups. Most moles appear in early childhood and during the first 25 years of a person’s life, in addition, it’s normal to have between 10-40 moles by adulthood.

Expert mole check in Manchester provided by Consultant Dermatologists, including founder of Everything Skin Clinic Dr Vishal Madan MBBS, MD, FRCP. At Everything Skin Clinic, we can provide full-body mole checks via a detailed dermoscopic examination, as well as mole mapping using the state-of-the-art Fotofinder machine.

All of our Consultant Dermatologists are part of the British Association of Dermatologists, the Royal Society of Medicine and the Royal College of Physicians.

HOW CAN MOLES BE CHECKED?

It is a good idea to check your moles at home once a month, especially if you have lots of moles or freckles (particularly if some are large), have fair hair or skin, use sunbeds or have a family history of skin cancer.

When checking your moles, use both a full length and a hand held mirror so you are able to check your body all over. Stand in a well lit room and ask a family member or your partner to help you check the hard to reach areas. Don’t forget to check less obvious places such as your scalp, the soles of your feet and in between your fingers and toes.

When checking your body for moles, you are looking for any changes to the size, colour of shape. You are also looking for itching, bleeding or crusting of moles which are signs you need to book an appointment to get your moles checked by a consultant dermatologist. If you are unsure about a mole, it is really important to get it checked by an expert.

 

If you have a single mole which you are concerned about and would like to be checked by an expert, book in for a single mole check at Everything Skin Clinics. The mole in question will be scanned with a dermascope by a specialist nurse which will then be sent to one of our consultant dermatologists to be reviewed. If the consultant is concerned you will be invited into the clinic for further investigation. If you have more than one mole you are concerned about, we would recommend a full body mole check or full body mole mapping.

For the single mole check we cannot investigate moles which are located in an intimate part of the body, are on the eyelid or top of the ear, covered by an excessive amount of hair, are on a tattoo or are wet, open or bleeding. If you have any questions on this, please get in contact. If your mole or lesion requires further investigations, we may need to excise (remove) all or part of it to be assessed for cancer. Your specialist can advise during your appointment.

If you have multiple moles on your body which you would like to be checked by an expert, book a full body mole check at Everything Skin Clinic with a consultant dermatologist. Your moles will be assessed and if your consultant is concerned with any of them and they require further investigation or treatment, this will be discussed with you. Our dermatologists are highly qualified, hospital based consultants who are all members of the British Association of Dermatologists, the Royal Society of Medicine, the General Medical Council and the Royal College of Physicians.

During your full body mole check, we will examine your skin using a dermatoscope, focusing on every mole and lesion. A dermatoscope uses a high-quality lens for 10-14 times magnification and a lighting system that enables visualization of subsurface structures and patterns.

If you have a lot of moles, especially on your back, checking and noticing changes to your own moles can be really difficult. With our mole mapping service, we can do it quickly and effectively for you. At Everything Skin Clinic, we provide a state of the art computer-assisted mole mapping and digital photo-dermoscopy surveillance service so we can check your moles for you. A dermatoscope helps dermatologists to distinguish benign moles from malignant (cancerous) lesions, especially in the diagnosis of melanoma, the most serious form of skin cancer. This is very hard to do with the naked eye alone.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

We recommend an annual review of your moles to identify any changes which may have occurred since your last appointment. However those at risk of skin cancer might need to be seen more frequently than this. We will send you a reminder to book your annual check. If you notice any changes to your moles between appointments, please contact us to book a mole check appointment.

 

It depends on your circumstances, family history and background. We recommend that you speak to one of our experts and they can suggest the best form of treatment for you.
