Worried about your moles? Have your moles checked at our clinic

What is a mole?

Moles are blemishes of various sizes and colours that are commonly seen on the body or face. They can be flat or raised and can be a variety of shapes. Although most moles are harmless, it is important to ensure a doctor examines any mole that changes shape, colour or starts to irritate.

Why have a mole checked?

A changing mole can be the first sign that a patient has a malignant melanoma. Early detection remains the most important factor in improving the survival rates of those diagnosed with melanoma.

Do you have freckles, skin tags, brown spots, bumps, nodules or moles? Do you check them regularly? Have you noticed any change in shape, size or colour?

If you are worried, it's advisable to have your moles checked by our dermatologist Dr Nicholas Craven.
