What results can I expect?
- Your doctor will explain to you the findings of the mole under the scrutiny of dermatoscope.
- Individual skin care advice will be given
- Skin medicated cream will be given depending on the skin condition.
- Depends on individual cases, sometimes your doctor will arrange a skin biopsy procedure to remove the mole and review the tissue sample under the microscope.
How many sessions do I need?
1 session should suffice. Your doctor usually will take a personal history and family history for risk factors. 1 mole check usually takes 5-10 minutes, a full body mole check occasionally can take up to 30-45 minutes for screening.
