Skin Cancers screening / Mole check

Skin cancers are easily curable with surgery when detected early. Hence, it is worthwhile to have skin cancer screening (aka full body mole check).

Skin Cancers

The three most common types of skin cancer are basal cell carcinoma (BCC), squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma. If you must suffer from a type of skin cancer, always pick BCC and not melanoma. BCC is usually just locally aggressive and can be cured easily if treated early with surgery. Melanoma is the most dangerous form of skin cancer and is the leading cause of death from all skin diseases combined.

Skin cancer screening / mole check

Skin cancers are easily curable with surgery when detected early. Hence, it is worthwhile to have skin cancer screening (aka full body mole check). In a skin cancer screening, every patient will be risk stratified according to his / her skin type, nationality, medical history, family history, occupation and recreational sun exposure history.

An experienced dermatologist will scrutinize and examine nearly every inch of your skin barring some private and sensitive area. Demoscopy will be used and is an invaluable tool to assist the dermatologist to look for the finer details of skin cancer and improve the accuracy of his clinical diagnosis.

    Mole mapping

    Mole mapping involves taking photographs of all the moles, recording in the computer, serially tracking and charting the progress of all the moles a patient may have. It is usually available only at established skin cancer centers around the world. Currently, Assurance Skin Clinic does not provide this type of service.
