Full Body Photography

Full Body Photography also known as Mole Mapping

What is mole mapping

Mole mapping, also known as Full Body Photography, is an easy, painless, and non-invasive way to keep track of your moles and determine the cancerous ones. The process involves the documentation of the moles on your body to identify possible risks of skin cancer.

With the combination of whole-body photography and advanced mole mapping software, we will be able to map the moles on your body. To protect your privacy, we will store the images on a secure server.

Then, we will compare the stored images to those taken on subsequent visits to help us point out suspicious moles and plan the steps you need to take – biopsy, removal, or further examination.

Why do I need this?

Full body photography is recommended for people at an increased risk of melanoma. This includes:

  • People who have a personal history of melanoma.
  • People with a family history of melanoma in a first degree relative (parent, sibling, or child) before the age of 50.
  • People who have many moles.
  • People with more than one large (over 5mm) irregularly shaped or coloured mole. The type of mole is referred to as a dysplastic naevus.
  • Patients with fair skin that tans poorly or with significantly sun damaged skin.

How to prepare for the procedure

The procedure takes approximately half an hour.

  • Privacy is ensured at all stages.
  • Make-up: Should be kept to a minimum.
  • Jewellery: Please remove all jewellery beforehand.
