If they have changed, if new ones appear or you think they look different for any reason you may want to get them checked out, diagnosed and treated by a specialist.
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.
FULL BODY AUTOMATED MOLE MAPPING WITH FOTOFINDER ATBM
Mole mapping is part of our mole assessment service and is conducted by consultant Dermatologist Dr Vishal Madan MBBS, MD, FRCP and his team of expert dermatologists. We are experts 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.
During your mole checking appointment, if a mole or lesion requires further investigation, part of or all the mole may need to be removed using our mole removal treatment so it can be assessed for cancer. Your specialist will advise you on this during your appointment.
Full body mole mapping at Everything Skin Clinic uses state-of-the-art DermEngine to map your moles and provide a permanent record so any changes over time can be quickly identified and investigated. This system provides computer mapping of your entire skin and high resolution mapping of individual moles. The images taken will be analysed by a consultant dermatologist, mapped and recorded. The ability to compare images and identify changes in the appearance of moles makes it a highly accurate tool in identifying the development of skin cancer. As part of the mole mapping service, you will be provided with a record of your images so you can review them any time. 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 you can make an appointment to get them checked.
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 Clinic. 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. Please note, single mole checks are not available at Stratum Dermatology Clinic Oxford.
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.

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.
At Everything Skin Clinic, we are able to remove your mole if your consultant dermatologist is concerned, or if you would like it removed for cosmetic reasons. Your consultant dermatologist will discuss your options with you during your appointment if required.
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.
