They evaluate each mole’s size, shape, colour, and texture for signs of skin cancer or abnormalities, and may take photographs for future monitoring. If suspicious moles are found, a biopsy might be recommended. The dermatologist will discuss their findings, provide skin care advice, and establish a follow-up plan if needed.
