Clinic based Skin Assessment and Mole Mapping Services

If you have a suspicious looking mole, are concerned about the amount of sun exposure you have had in the past, or want to be proactive about your skin health on a regular basis; our trained and experienced Dermatoscopists can perform one of two consultations depending on your needs.

Depending on your previous history and concerns, we can complete either:

  • Mole Mapping, or
  • Skin Cancer Assessment

Mole Mapping

In order to monitor both short and long term changes in moles, (a good indicator of melanoma), mole mapping uses Total Body Imaging to record the details of your skin. At the first consultation, we take a full skin history, which involves taking a set of 33 body photographs of your entire skin. We then image any slightly abnormal or atypical moles at 30x magnification, to enable any new or changing lesions to be more easily identified during future consultations.

We take a look at your entire skin surface, including your scalp, fingernails and even right down between your toes. We can even provide you with a copy of the images taken during mole mapping for a small fee.

Depending on your history, risk factors and the types of moles present, we will monitor you over a period of 3, 6 or 12 months to detect any microscopic changes, making mole mapping an extremely beneficial and convenient health service.

Skin Smart Australia

Mole mapping is completely safe for everyone, including pregnant women, as it involves photography. We supply you with a dignity gown so you will remain covered as much as possible throughout the consultation. We ask that make up (particularly foundation and lipstick) be removed prior to the consultation and that you refrain from applying moisturiser on the day of the appointment.

Mole mapping is excellent for:

  • Those who have a family or personal history of Melanoma or other skin cancers
  • Those with multiple or atypical moles
  • Those with a history of high sun exposure
  • Those with fair skin, a tendency to burn rather than tan, freckles, light eye colour, light or red hair

Quality Control

Every lesion imaged during our skin cancer consultations is subjected to a stringent quality control process. This involves the sighting of each lesion by no less than two senior Dermatoscopists. During this process the images are further evaluated for suspicious features. The qualified skin cancer doctors at EFMC also provide their expertise during this process.

Assessment Results

The Dermatoscopist will prepare a comprehensive report of their findings which will be sent to your General Practitioner. You will also receive a booklet which contains details of your results.

Should you have a lesion(s) that the Dermatoscopist identifies as requiring further investigation, you will be recommended to a Doctor with qualifications in both Dermatoscopy and Skin Cancer Surgery. You may also visit a Doctor of your choice for follow up treatment, in which case we will support and assist you in any way possible.
