Frequently Asked Questions

How long will the Mole Screening take?

Allow yourself 45-60 minutes for the appointment. If you have a large number of moles then you may need to have more moles imaged, which can take a bit longer.

What is Mole Screening?

It is a full visual Head to Toe skin check, followed by computerised digital dermoscopy to image moles for a closer check and future monitoring. 

Do I have to get undressed?

The head to toe skin check and all your dermoscopic photos are taken with your underwear on and the consultation is carried out in a way that respects your modesty as much as possible.

 

Can I have a single mole check?

It is possible to have a single mole check.  However, if you are worried about new or changing moles we recommend a full Head to Toe Mole Screening, to ensure that there are no abnormal moles in areas that you cannot easily see or check yourself.

Do I need to bring anything to my appointment?

If you have any results from previous moles removed, then it is good to bring them to the appointment. Bring a hair tie for long hair, remove any make up for a thorough check and it is best if you remove any coloured nail polish.
