Why do I need mole assessment?

If a mole changes its appearance, or if a new mark appears on the skin that looks like a mole, this may represent malignant melanoma and should be reported to your doctor for urgent mole assessment. The surgical removal of malignant melanoma at an early stage in its development can prevent its spread and cure the condition.

Almost everyone has moles and some people have quite a lot. It can be difficult to know whether a mole has changed or whether a mark on your skin is new. This is a particular problem for skin sites that are hard to keep an eye on, for instance your back. 

Our experienced dermatologists can examine and assess your moles. We can also provide a state of the art computer-assisted mole mapping and digital photo-dermoscopy surveillance service. This is particularly useful for people who are known to have an increased risk of the development of malignant melanoma.
