Mole Mapping

What is it?  A surveillance program for suspicious moles in order to keep track of moles for early detection of skin cancer and melanoma.

How is it done? This can include self examination and/or physician (dermatologist) examinations.

Who should get moles mapped? If you have high risk factors:

  • Fair skin that has repeatedly been sun burned or exposed to UV (like tanning beds).
  • More than 50 moles.
  • Personal or family history of Melanoma.

When to do it? Resolve to do this yearly in the winter, when your skin has no tan. It’s perfect for a new years resolution!
