What is full body mole mapping?


Full body mole mapping | The Clinic


Full body mole mapping is a quick and thorough way to check all of your moles for skin cancer. The process scans your entire body to form a baseline, and then all future tests are automatically compared to detect any new or changed moles.


New moles or changes in existing moles can indicate the presence of skin cancer. Changes include bleeding, itching, pain, changes in colour, shape, size and surface, and more. Read this article for a more comprehensive list.


Long term mole monitoring helps detect early changes in your moles. Noticing changes to your moles as quickly as possible can help in the early detection of skin cancer, which is important for improving the success rates of treatment.
