Mole mapping

Take control of your skin
health today!

Mole mapping is a way for dermatologists to compare a person’s moles over time.  This is critical to patients who have had skin cancer or have a high risk of getting it.  The earlier abnormal moles can be found, the better chance a person has of surviving melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer.

What to expect

Photos are taken of a patient in thirty-six (36) poses so that the entire body is pictured.  The photographs are then placed in the patient’s chart for future comparison.

We will attempt to pre-authorize your mole mapping with your insurance company prior to your visit. Generally, patients with a history of melanoma are covered.

If you have had skin cancer or are at high risk of getting it, and would like to schedule a mole mapping appointment, call us at (509) 735-1100.
