Your skin cancer doctors assess any suspicious lesions with the use of a dermascope which enables the doctor to see your suspicious moles at a microscopic level. High resolution details can be seen with a dermascope that may not be obvious with naked eye and the picture can be photographed and saved for future monitoring and comparison.
Workplace onsite skin checks are also available.
