About Mole Mapping
Mole Mapping is a technique used to capture images of each area of your body. It requires you to move through a series of poses that are captured by a mole mapping device. We use the latest in German Technology – the FotoFinder.
As the GP captures macro (large) images of each area of your body, each individual mole or lesion on that area is mapped and analysed. Suspicious lesions will be examined more closely with a micro (small) dermoscopic image to determine if the lesion needs to be removed or monitored.
Who is a good candidate for Mole Mapping?
Mole Mapping is appropriate for you if:
- You have more than 50 moles or lesions on your skin
- You have very pale skin and or a family history of skin cancer
- You spend a lot of time outdoors for work or recreation
- You are over 65 and grew up in Australia
- You have used tanning beds or solariums
How long does Mole Mapping take?
Depending on how many lesions or moles you have, this process typically takes 45 minutes. To achieve good quality images we ask that you come to the appointment with clear skin, free of make up and fake tan.
What happens if I need to have a mole removed?
If the lesion needs to be removed you will be instructed to book a separate appointment for this procedure. We can tell you exactly how much the procedure will cost, so you can avoid the stress of bill shock. It’s just plain wrong that we don’t know what we are facing in advance so that we can plan accordingly.
