Skin cancer is the most common cause of cancer in the UK and is caused by sunburn, sunbeds and unprotected UV exposure. Those with freckles or moles are at higher risk.
Sometimes a mole or lesion starts to change shape, size or colour and that is when it is important to have it checked as soon as possible.
Early detection can save lives and regular mole checks are an effective safeguard against skin cancer.
We offer a Mole Clinic with the following services:
A mole check consists of an initial consultation with a Dermatologist where they will ask you questions about your general health and lifestyle and carry out an in depth examination of your moles.
If there are any moles that the Dermatologist is concerned about they will use a high powered skin surface microscope to check for signs of melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer.
A comprehensive, computer controlled ‘mole map’ of your entire body. Our mole mapping technology allows us to spot even subtle changes to moles over time.
For any suspicious moles your skilled Dermatologist can carry out removal.
Once removed the specimen will be sent for histology analysis to check whether the mole is cancerous or not. Your results will usually be available within 72 hours for peace of mind.
Every mole check is carried out by a Dermatologist and you will be provided with a full report on findings from your mole map as well as recommendations for any further treatment required.
We are also able to examine and diagnose all other skin lesions including skin tags and remove them if necessary. Appointments for mole checks are available from Monday to Saturday.

I was recommended to see Dr Haus in July 2015 by a friend. She knew I had seen a few other doctors in Brazil where I am from about a skin allergy which still persisted for nearly two years. The allergy was getting more intense and because it started to affect my sleep I decided to see Dr Haus. The clinic is very well located in Harley Street and the staff were ever so friendly. I felt very comfortable discussing my skin issue with him as he explained about its possible causes and what we could do in order to get better. The consultation room was so welcoming and beautifully decorated which makes you feel good about being there. He prescribed a cream and some other medicine to be taken for a month. He also suggested a special soap for me to wash my body with which I still use to this day. I am grateful to him because my body feels fine; my skin is in good condition and I started sleeping well again. If I ever need another dermatologist who I know will listen and explain to me about my skin condition in terms that I can understand while taking a good care of me I would go back to see Dr. Haus. Thank you very much for your attention Dr Haus.
