Skin Check


Why Should I Get My Mole
Checked?
Every year, over 80,000 cases of skin cancer are diagnosed in Canada. The survival rate of skin cancer is heavily affected by how quickly it is found. In its early stages, Melanoma (the most dangerous form of skin cancer) has a 98% survival rate. Since early detection is such a big factor, it’s important to get your moles checked to avoid any unwanted surprises.


What Can I
Expect?
Your checkup is nothing to worry about. Dermoscopy imaging using MoleScope is painless and handled by medical professionals to make sure that you are comfortable and informed throughout the scan. When you arrive for your appointment, you will be seated with a healthcare professional. They will ask if you have a preference for which mole is scanned. The staff will then take a high-resolution image with MoleScope, and make sure the quality is clear before sending it to an expert for review. You will receive your consultation via email within five business days of your Skin Check session.
