Moles

Moles are very common and most commonly are referred to us to make sure they are not pre-cancerous or cancerous (malignant melanoma.)

Otherwise they are only of concern if they affect a person's appearance, or perhaps, when catching in clothes or jewellery .

All CSI GPs will arrange for an urgent hospital opinion if a melanoma is suspected, as this disease requires skin specialist and cancer specialist care.

Examination of the skin and diagnosis of melanoma is a skill which CSI doctors have developed. Often they will use an instrument called a dermatoscope to undertake a detailed examintion of a suspect mole.

Your CSI GP can reassure you about other moles or remove them in a variety of ways in order to solve your cosmetic or functional problem with a benign mole.
