Dear Doctor Mole mapping monitors for melanoma
- Posted on: Nov 24 2015
Mole mapping typically involves photography of the entire body. These photographs, which are saved digitally, serve as a baseline and assist the physician during a patient’s annual skin exam. It is particularly useful in monitoring people at higher risk for melanoma, including individuals with numerous moles, a history of dysplastic or atypical moles, a personal or family history of melanoma, or a history of multiple sunburns or tanning bed use.
