What is a Mole Check
With a referral from your family physician, Dr. Malherbe is able to complete a full body mole check, assessing and analysing moles all over your entire body, some which may not even be visible to you. Everyone should have annual mole checks (especially if you have a family history of skin cancers), but if you notice your moles are changing color or appearance, or if they bleed, ooze, itch or become tender and painful, you should have them evaluated.
How It Works
Dr. Malherbe does mole checks through dermatoscopy (examination of lesions with a dermatoscope). Also known as a dermoscopy, it allows for magnified inspection of skin lesions unobstructed by skin surface reflections, allowing for a more accurate assessment and helps to avoid unnecessary biopsies.
