See Spot Check Clinic website's Online Consulting page for multiple tips and resources on getting the best possible photos of your spot.
Skin magnification devices
For best results, we strongly recommended that you use a specialised magnification device to take the picture, otherwise your skin cancer specialist won't be able to provide you with an accurate assessment.
A MoleScope produces high quality photos of your spot, at a similar quality to those taken by our doctor. This gives the best possible opportunity for an accurate diagnosis and advice about how to manage your spot.
Available online from the manufacturer, MetaOptima. Enter the code COVID19 at checkout for a $300 discount (approx 65 per cent).
The SkinScope is a simple and inexpensive magnifying lens that sticks over the camera of any model of smart phone or tablet. It is registered as a medical device in Australia.
Call us on 03 9098 7474 to arrange to have a SkinScope sent by Express Post.
Alternatively, order a SkinScope online from the manufacturer, Firstcheck.
You can still continue without a Molesope or SkinScope
To minimise delays, you can take photos of your spot of concern now without using magnification. You can take photos using your SkinScope later and add them to this consultation without additional expense if you have registered on the first page of the form.
