Why add total body photography to your skin cancer check?
"With total body photography, we find more melanomas and we find them earlier." In this short video, Professor David Wilkinson explains why patients in certain risk groups should receive regular total body photography as part of their skin cancer screening, and how the advanced technology can help you.

"The earlier we find the melanoma, the quicker we can cut it out, leading to a higher cure rate," says Prof Wilkinson. "At the same time, total body photography reduces the amount of unnecessary excisions [because] we can compare lesions on the computer and it will tell us what they looked like 12 months before."
For high-risk patients, total body photography – combined with a full skin cancer check with a qualified doctor – is the best method to detect skin cancers accurately and identify potential skin cancers as early as possible by monitoring changes over time.
Why do I need total body photography?
1. Earliest skin cancer detection
Easy side-by-side comparison reveals the most subtle changes in moles that may be indicative of melanoma in its earliest and most curable phase.
2. Less scares and less scars
Suspicious lesions are highlighted and can be removed faster in less invasive procedures. Unnecessary biopsies of moles that haven’t changed can also be avoided.
3. Peace of mind
Whether you have lots of moles, have a family or personal history of melanoma, or just want reassurance to conﬁrm your doctor’s diagnosis, total body photography can eliminate these worries.
