DIGITAL MOLE MAPPING
Bodyworx now offers digital mole mapping as part of our dermatology department. We are the first in Abu Dhabi to offer such detailed and accurate skin cancer screening, mole mapping and hair analysis with the FotoFinder dermoscope. We can accurately track changes in moles across multiple appointments and can print a detailed report showing the changes and results of analysis.
Mole-mapping allows our dermatologist to detect the earliest signs of melanoma by maintaining and monitoring photographic records of your skin. On consequent visits, your moles can be compared with your previous digital images we have saved to your file to determine any changes since the last exam.
If you have any of the following, you are a good candidate to have your moles digitally mapped
- A large number of moles
- Moles that have an unusual appearance
- A family history of skin cancer
- A personal history of skin cancer
- Pale skin that burns easily in the sun
- A history or any incidents of severe sunburn
- Regular significant exposure to the sun such as working outdoors
- A weak immune system
Treatment for a malignant melanoma is most effective when detected at an early stage, so having your moles digitally mapped regularly gives you the best chance of catching them before they progress too far. Establishing which moles are malignant and which are harmless also means not needing to unnecessarily remove moles that were not causing any problems.
