Digital imaging and mole mapping is offered for future comparison
You will leave your appointment knowing the results, and with a recommendation for further review or treatment. There¿s no need to wait while images are sent for diagnosis.
Removal or excision of a melanoma or skin cancer, if necessary, is offered at an advanced level by the same Doctor who diagnosed you.

You can make an appointment with MoleMedic without a referral from your own GP. Following your consultation, a report will be sent to your GP, unless you request otherwise.
New Zealand has one of the highest incidences of malignant melanoma in the world, and the incidence is doubling every 10 years. Melanoma is an aggressive skin cancer and can metastasize (spread) very quickly. You should have your skin checked regularly by a Doctor with specific qualifications in dermatoscopy.
ARE YOU AT RISK?
LifeStyle: Over exposure to the sun dramatically increases risk. Sunburn in childhood increases the melanoma risk significantly.
Family History: If your parents, grandparents or siblings have had a skin cancer or melanoma you are at increased risk.
Skin Type: If you are fair skinned and sunburn easily you are most at risk of skin cancer.
Pre-Cancerous Lesions: Some moles, especially those called a dysplastic naevus can progress to cancer and should be checked regularly
