Mole Check

Mole checks 

We all know how worrying moles can be and how often skin cancer can affect people in the UK. Moles are a natural skin growth and come in all shapes and sizes. However, it’s important to get your moles checked by a specialist if you notice any changes in a new or existing mole because when it comes to skin cancer, early detection and mole removal are key to recovery.



There are two main types of skin cancer, Melanoma, and Non-Melanoma skin cancers which include Basal Cell Carcinoma and Squamous Cell Carcinoma.

You should see a specialist if any of your moles have the following symptoms:

  • Change in size
  • Irregular shape or border
  • Irregular colour
  • Largest diameter 7 mm or more
  • Inflammation
  • Oozing or crusting of the lesion
  • Change in sensation (including itch)


There are also many factors that increase your risk of skin cancer like having a large number of moles on your body or if someone in your family has had skin cancer previously.

At London Doctors Clinics we offer specialist-led Mole Check Clinics at our Kings Cross and Oxford Street clinics for assessment, surveillance, treatment (including mole removal), and prevention advice for moles.

Your screening is carried out by a Dermoscopy specialist, for instant peace of mind. Dermoscopy refers to the non-invasive examination of the skin using skin surface microscopy.

Appointments for mole checks are 30 minutes and cost £90. 

After your initial consultation, if you need further investigation or treatment, we can also do a biopsy and mole removal at our Oxford Street Clinic.

Book your mole check today if you have noticed any moles with changed appearance abnormalities, have a family history of skin cancer or are just looking for some peace of mind.
