People who are at increased risk of melanoma should consider having their moles mapped. This includes anyone with:

  • Large number of moles (more than 50).

  • Moles that are large, or have an unusual colour or shape.

  • Previous personal or family history of melanoma.

  • Pale skin that burns easily in the sun.

  • Episodes of previous severe sunburn.

  • Moles on the back, which may be difficult to keep an eye on. 

  • Any recent changes to individual moles

 

By checking your moles regularly, you should be able to catch a suspicious mole at an early stage so it can be dealt with quickly. Our Mole Mapping service does this for you quickly and effectively. Should any suspicious moles be discovered as part of your Mole Mapping, you’ll be fast-tracked to the best course of action.
