Skin Cancer

Most skin cancers are highly treatable, especially when they’re caught early, so having skin cancer screenings is an important part of your healthcare routine.

Any adult who’s never had one should consider scheduling a full-body skin exam to establish a baseline and to discuss whether, or how often, regular skin checks are necessary.

Annual skin exams may be recommended for anyone who:

  • Has a history of melanoma, other skin cancers or precancerous skin lesions

  • Has a first-degree relative who has had melanoma.

  • Has a large number of moles or a history of atypical moles

  • Has a history of tanning bed use.

  • Has a history of blistering sunburns.

  • Has a history of significant regular sun exposure through activities such as boating or living in a sunny location, or occupations such as landscaping or construction.

Our Skin Cancer Doctor, Dr Praveen Athota, have extensive training and experience and highly skilled in the accurate diagnosis and optimal management of skin cancer, melanoma and the full range of dermatological problems.


He is trained in Advanced Skin Cancer Medicine and Surgery and certified in Dermoscopy;  an accredited skin cancer doctor for SCCA, and over 13 years of dermatology experience in the UK and Australia. 

Mole Mapping


Mole mapping is an innovative solution that uses technology to create a permanent record of all existing moles so any new or changing growths can be identified early on and monitored before they have a chance to develop further and cause irreparable damage.

If you have a lot of moles, especially on your back, checking and noticing changes to your own moles can be really difficult. With our mole mapping service, we can do it quickly and effectively for you. Regular mole checking in this way is key to the early detection of melanoma skin cancer.

A Mole Map also includes a Full Body Skin Check to identify any moles which are visually abnormal - another potential symptom of a skin cancer. 

This mole cancer screening service takes up to 45-60 minutes and a separate appointment is booked with our Skin Cancer Doctor for further consultation of the results.


A mole check is with one of our doctors who will use a dermatoscope to look at your mole(s) to identify any cause for concern. They will diagnose your mole as either benign or cancerous and then discuss next steps with you.


A full body mole map using the Molemax machine uses technology to capture high resolution images of your moles which can be used to compare changes in your moles over time. Your moles will be checked using an artificial intelligence algorithm to assess each mole and provide cancer risk analysis and also assessed by your consultant dermatologist.
