What Is a Mole Mapping?

Skin cancer is highly curable if detected in its early stages. It is the most preventable forms of cancer. Sometimes, moles can evolve into skin cancer. It is important to get your moles evaluated by a physician, to rule out melanoma. Mole mapping is a technology that uses a computerized photo comparison tool to closely monitor changes in moles for patients with strong family history of skin cancer. In mole mapping, magnified images of moles or skin lesions are taken and closely monitored with the help of a standardized photo process.

When Should You See
Physician for Moles?

You should consult a physician for mole mapping if you are at a high risk for developing skin cancer. People with family history, certain skin types, and people who have experienced excessive exposure to sun are at an increased risk of developing skin cancers. Besides that, you should consider seeing a physician if you experience the following symptoms:

How Can Mole Mapping Help?

Mole mapping uses a highly computerized mole mapping system called as the ‘’FotoFinder’’ that helps in comparing baseline images of your moles. This uses a polarized photography that creates a database of high-resolution images that keep track of even the smallest changes in your mole, every year.

Total body photography ensures that potential changes in moles and lesions are tracked for early detection of skin cancer.
