Introducing our 2-step approach to mole checking, detection, mole mapping and mole treatment.
The majority of people have moles on their body, with some having many moles on areas of the body that are hard to view such as your back. As a result, it can sometimes be difficult to know whether a mole has changed or whether a mark on your skin is new.
At the Everything Skin clinic™, we provide a state of the art mole checking service that uses computer-assisted mole mapping and digital photo-dermoscopy surveillance service so that we can check your moles for you. This is particularly useful for people who are known to have an increased risk of the development of malignant melanoma.
Full body automated mole mapping with Fotofinder ATBM
Mole mapping is part of our mole checking service and is conducted by a highly qualified consultant dermatologist. The dermatologist is an expert in skin cancer and will carry out the mole check using cutting edge skin-imaging technology; the FotoFinder system.
This system provides state-of-the-art laser guided computer mapping of your entire skin and high resolution mapping of individual moles. This part of the mole checking service uses an artificial intelligence algorithm to assess each mole and provide cancer risk analysis.
The images the FotoFinder system takes are analysed by your dermatologist, mapped and recorded. It’s ability to compare images and identify changes in the appearance of moles makes it a highly accurate tool in the development of skin cancer.
As part of the mole checking service, you will be provided with a record of your mole map and the digital images will be securely stored for future reference.
You will be invited back for an annual review to check for any changes to your moles, but of course if you notice any changes to your moles sooner, please contact us to make an appointment.
During your mole checking appointment, if a mole or lesion requires further investigation, we may need to remove all or part of the mole so it can be assessed for cancer. Your specialist will advise you on this during your appointment.

Full body mole check and detailed dermoscopic examination
A dermatoscope uses a high-quality lens for 10 to 14-times magnification and a lighting system which enables visualization of subsurface structures and patterns.
Dermatoscope helps dermatologists to distinguish benign moles from malignant (cancerous) lesions, especially in the diagnosis of melanoma – the most serious skin cancer.
Pattern recognition and specialist training in dermatology and dermoscopy allows our clinical staff to differentiate benign (harmless) moles from dysplastic (abnormal) moles and melanoma (skin cancer). This allows early removal of dangerous moles and prevents unnecessary removal of benign moles.
