Mole screening services

Many of us have moles, and the vast majority are completely harmless – however they should still be checked regularly. Lifescan’s Mole Checks use innovative scanning technology to investigate suspect moles quickly and painlessly.

You can have a single mole check or a comprehensive check of all of your moles here at Spire Hartswood Hospital.

Call 0845 456 4484 to book your scan or visit our Lifescan screening services page to find out more.
