MOLE MAPPING.

Everything you need to know.

Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the UK, with over 400 people being diagnosed every day. Melanoma skin cancer is on the rise, with incidence rates increasing by 45% in the UK in the last decade, despite the warnings of the dangerous effects of sun exposure. Early detection of skin cancer, through examination and regular monitoring of moles, saves lives and if caught and treated early enough there is a 100% chance of survival. However, if left to develop and evolve, melanoma can become fatal which is why we strongly recommend having your moles checked regularly.
Through early detection, mole mapping offers a great safeguard against skin cancer by catching suspicious moles before they evolve into melanoma. By creating a permanent record of your moles, anything new or changing can be easily identified, giving you peace of mind.

What does mole mapping do?

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.

During your mole mapping appointment at Stratum Clinics Wimbledon, you will be seen by a highly qualified consultant dermatologist, who is an expert in skin cancer. All of our consultants are registered with the major health insurers and are members of the British Association of Dermatologists (BAD). The Harley Street Dermatology Clinic is regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and has won multiple awards for customer service.

Mole mapping is conducted 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. It has an artificial intelligence algorithm to assess each mole and provide cancer risk analysis. The images it takes are analysed by your consultant, mapped and recorded. It’s ability to compare images and identify change makes it a highly accurate tool in the development of skin cancer. If necessary, a super high resolution magnified image of any moles or lesions of concern is taken through a device called a dermatoscope.

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 where we can assess any changes.

During your appointment, if a mole or lesion requires further investigation, we may need to remove all or part of it so it can be assessed for cancer. Your specialist will advise you on this during your appointment

Frequently asked questions

Who is mole mapping for?

Our FotoFinder mole mapping service is suited to adults who have a large number of moles across their body, or for those who wish to monitor their skin. As early detection is key in treating skin cancer, it is recommended that moles are checked regularly. If you only have a small number of moles on your body, we recommend you book in for a single mole check with us.

How often do I need my moles checked?

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.

What happens if I have a precancerous mole?

At the Stratum Dermatology Clinics Wimbledon we are able to remove your mole if it is suspicious for being cancerous, of concern or if you would like it removed for cosmetic reasons. Your consultant will discuss your options with you during your appointment if required.

How much does mole mapping cost?

Full body mole mapping at Stratum Dermatology Clinic Wimbledon costs £299. This includes a consultation with one of our highly experienced consultants and a copy of your mole map summary for your own reference.

How long does a mole mapping appointment take?

Mole mapping at the Stratum Dermatology Clinic Wimbledon takes approximately 1 hour.

Stratum clinics are regulated by the Care Quality Commission, are part of the British Association of Dermatologists and are top rated by patients on Doctify.
