The average adult has 10-40 moles at any one time. The vast majority of these should cause absolutely no concern but, with 37 UK diagnoses of malignant melanoma every day, having your skin checked and looking out for any changes regularly is absolutely vital.
Some people find themselves unhappy with safe moles, either aesthetically or from them catching on clothing. There are unqualified beauty salons that offer mole removal but these can sometimes miss underlying skin cancers or be performed poorly, leaving scarring or marks on the surrounding skin.
Mole Mapping and Removal
Over the past 30 years, rates of malignant melanoma have risen faster than any other form of common cancer in the UK. Survival rates, however, are also amongst the highest due to a huge advance in early detection services. Most moles are harmless but, if you notice anything unusual or simply wish to have one removed, our mole mapping and removal service is designed to give you peace of mind and stop any form of cancer before it becomes an issue.
Advanced technology means that we are now able to detect malignant melanoma in its earliest stage, and the illness has one of the highest survival rates of any cancer. If you have any new moles after the age of 30 or if you notice any changes in existing moles, seeking professional help is quick, painless and really can save lives.

We recommend checking your skin every few months for any new moles and changes in existing ones. Any new moles that appear after the age of 30 should be checked thoroughly by a professional as their risk is significantly higher. A helpful way to remember what to look for in determining a dangerous mole is to use the ABCD method:
Depending on the size of your mole, its location and the method used to remove it, you may be left with a small scar. Your dermatologist will always work with you to ensure that any blemishes are minimal and will advise you on your risk of scarring during consultation and treatment.
The cost of an appointment with our Consultant Dermatologist is £200. A full mole check cost is £200 (included in the consultation price) and, depending on the treatment course offered by the Consultant Dermatologist, mole removal will cost approximately £600. If you require a biopsy, the following pricing guidelines apply: Diagnostic skin biopsy – £300 Excisional skin biopsy – £600 You will be informed of an accurate pricing structure for your treatment following your consultation.
