Map My Mole offers the following services (“Services”) which you can access through the App:


Map My Mole does not provide diagnoses for any medical conditions (including but not limited to melanoma or skin cancer) and is not intended to replace an assessment from a qualified medical practitioner.

The App is intended to provide you with a way to get an indicative opinion from a dermatologist based on photographs you have submitted to them through the App, to help you decide whether you need onward referral for moles you are concerned with. Please note that it is not possible to diagnose any cancer from images and a formal diagnosis requires a biopsy(sample removed under anaesthetic) and histological assessment. However, our consultant dermatologists can help identify a suspicious mole that might need further investigation such as a biopsy.

You are responsible for following the instructions within the App and for ensuring that any images provided by you to us are of sufficient quality to allow us to perform the Services. Any opinion that you receive from us may not be accurate if the images you’ve submitted are unclear or not of sufficient quality.
