MOLE MAPPING SERVICE IN Shropshire, Shrewsbury

Mole mapping is an invaluable service which provides a detailed overview of suspicious moles or lesions for early detection and diagnosis of skin cancer before it has a chance to spread. This service is provided with the use of high-tech imaging systems, computer software, and specially trained professionals who can accurately detect changes in moles over time and identify any irregularities present. It helps individuals to be in control of their skin health before any serious damage may occur.

The benefit of having mole maps is to ensure that changes occurring on your body are captured so that you have peace of mind knowing that nothing has been missed. Additionally, with reliable documents on record, regular check-ups with a dermatologist are much smoother, as they can go through the records quickly and contain any potential issues swiftly and safely.

HOW CAN MOLES BE CHECKED?

When it comes to monitoring moles, home-checks are a great way to stay on top of any potential changes. It is important to check your entire body every month if you have lots of moles or freckles, fair skin, or if skin cancer runs in your family. You will need both a full length and a handheld mirror for optimal coverage, as well as good lighting and the help of a family member or partner to check any hard-to-reach areas like your scalp, the soles of your feet, and between your fingers and toes. When checking yourself for changes in size, colour, shape, itching, bleeding or crusting of moles – all signs you should book an appointment with a healthcare professionals – take into account that different levels of benign change are normal over time.
