Mole Scan at Metro Medical
At Metro Medical Centre, our highly trained Doctors use the latest technologies to significantly increase early detection, diagnosis and treatment of melanoma and other skin cancers.
Our Mole Scan services include:
WHOLE BODY PHOTOGRAPHY
About half of all melanomas emerge on plain skin. This can be detected if we have a photo record of the skin for future comparison.
Dermoscopy is the technology that lets us look through the skin to its structures, allowing us to clearly diagnose moles.
You can see what is not possible to see with the naked eye.
Using dermoscopy the diagnosis rate for melanomas increases from 40-50% to over 90%.
EVERY MOLE/MARK ASSESSED
A dermoscope is used to assess every mole on the body. Not all early melanomas are visible to the naked eye. Some melanomas we have diagnosed have been as small as 1mm in diameter.
In most cases our patients were not aware of the melanoma on their body.
All moles with abnormal structures are saved.
Healthy moles do not change or change in predictable ways.
Melanomas change and rewrite their structure.
We offer a thorough body skin check and assessment in our practice through GP skin health experts
