The London Dermatology Clinic recommends that anyone with a mole that has undergone a change in appearance should come in to the skin clinic for mole analysis. These types of mole checks allow the dermatologist to determine whether or not these changes in size, colour or shape indicate that skin cancer is present.

“It was reassuring to see a specialist to check out a mole that has been troubling me after years of sun beds”. J.S Romford

Prevalence and Risk Factors

The vast majority of people have 10-40 moles on their body with up to 10% of these people having at least one mole with an atypical or unusual appearance. Moles that are changing in appearance may be becoming atypical moles which have a higher risk of becoming melanoma. Risk factors for atypical moles and melanoma include having fair skin, a history of sunburns, excessive sun exposure, radiation exposure and a family history. During mole analysis, the London Dermatology Clinic will discuss risk factors with patients having their moles examined.

Mutations and errors in the DNA of skin cells are what cause skin cancer. The cells grow out of control to form a mass of cancer cells because of these genetic mutations.

Exposure to ultraviolet radiation from the sun, tanning beds and lamps is a major cause of skin cancer. Other factors such as radiation exposure, immune system diseases and exposure to toxic substances can also lead to skin cancer. The London Dermatology Clinic will help determine if a suspicious looking mole is cancerous, precancerous or completely harmless during the analysis procedure.

While the vast majority of moles are completely harmless, it is important to have them checked on an ongoing basis if there is any suspicion about it. The London Dermatology Clinic has trained specialists that can determine whether the mole presents a threat or is merely a cosmetic issue. Either way, moles can be removed quite easily by a dermatologist at the London Dermatology Clinic. Moles that protrude from the skin that are a cosmetic issue can be shaved off while surgical excisions are recommended for moles that are suspicious. This excised tissue is then sent away for testing to determine if it was indeed a problem. Melanoma that is discovered early can be treated and cured.

“Having over 50 moles it was about time I saw a dermatologist to make sure I did not need any removing, one less worry for me now.” A.A Maidstone
