During your consultation, a dermatoscope will be used to allow your skin cancer doctor to visualize below the surface of the skin. This allows the doctor to identify any suspicious lesions. The examination is completely painless.
At Sun & Skin Medical Centre, our skin cancer doctors also offer mole mapping using state of the art FotoFinder technology. This is a revolutionary, total body mole mapping system, that uses advanced technology to capture images of the entire skin surface. A full body map can be completed in as little as just a few minutes.
This map then allows your skin cancer doctor to identify new or changing skin lesions with subsequent consultations, making this technology a powerful diagnostic tool.
In cases where your skin cancer doctor may find a spot that is suspicious in their opinion, they may choose to either photograph it for monitoring, or perhaps they may recommend taking a biopsy (a sample of the skin). Biopsies are then sent off to the pathology lab for diagnosis. Your skin cancer doctor will be in touch with the results once they become available from the lab, and they will speak with you to arrange any treatments that may be required.
