What is Melanoma - Professional Mole Checks at Freyja Medical

Mole Checks

Regular mole checks are crucial for your skin health.

Take control of your well-being with monthly at-home checks, and ensure peace of mind through annual professional assessments by our expert dermatologist doctors.

 

With the steady rise in skin cancers, mole checks are becoming increasingly popular…

It’s very common to have moles that we are uncertain about. When you notice that a mole may be changing in size, shape or colour, it’s advisable to get the opinion of a specialist.

Our expert doctors will take a detailed consultation & discuss your personal risk for skin cancers. During the mole check consultation they will examine ALL your visible moles to identify any which are visually abnormal and any that need ongoing surveillance or removal.

If you have other skin issues you can also find information about our dermatology consultations here.

Mole Check

Moles can be a common and harmless part of the skin, but they can also be a potential indicator of skin cancer, including the most dangerous form, melanoma.

That’s why it’s crucial to conduct regular mole checks to detect any signs of potential skin cancer early. You can use the ‘ABCDE guideline’ for this – click here for your step-by-step guide to checking your moles at home.

Professional mole checks by our dermatologists, using advanced technology and techniques, are equally as important as regular at-home checks. They detect issues missed in self-checks.

Early detection can make a significant difference in melanoma and skin cancer outcomes.

 

Testimonial: A Life-Changing Experience

“Following a check in August when Dr Dean noticed a suspicious mole on my back, it was diagnosed as a malignant melanoma and has since been removed.

Everyone has been telling me how lucky I’ve been for it to have been caught so early (stage 1A), so thank you James.

I realise now how incredibly lucky I’ve been and have shown the pictures to friends to emphasise the A to E check is not enough really, it needs an expert eye. Many thanks again.”

What to Expect during a Mole Check at Freyja Medical

Our dermatologists have extensive experience in performing thorough mole checks, using the latest technology and techniques to detect any abnormalities or changes in the skin. We also take the time to answer any questions you may have and provide you with a tailored plan to help keep your skin healthy.

During your mole check consultation, our dermatologists will examine your skin from head to toe, looking for any moles that may be suspicious or atypical. We will also take a medical history and discuss any previous sun exposure, as well as any other factors that may increase your risk of skin cancer.

 

Skin Cancer

If any moles are found to be suspicious, we may recommend a biopsy or full removal to determine whether skin cancer is present. If skin cancer is detected, we will work with you to develop a personalised treatment plan that addresses your individual needs.

At our skin clinic, we take a comprehensive approach to skin health, offering a range of treatments and services to help you maintain healthy skin.

If you’re concerned about the appearance of your moles or are overdue for a mole check, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with our dermatologists.
