Skin Cancer & Mole Checks

The Doctors at Koru Clinic use a combination of direct inspection, dermoscopy and magnification to examine moles and other skin lesions.
Skin and Mole checks

New Zealand has the highest rate of Melanoma in the world. Regular skin checks with experienced doctors are proven to be highly effective in  detecting and diagnosing skin cancers, and improving the outcome for patients with skin cancer.

Our Doctors can also treat sun damage before it becomes a skin cancer.

Biopsy or Formal Excision of suspicious lesions

For any suspicious or undetermined lesions or moles, a skin biopsy or formal excision is usually recommended, so that that a tissue sample can be taken and  sent to a laboratory to check for the presence of skin cancer.

Local anaesthetic is always provided for skin excision procedures to minimise pain or discomfort.

Skin Cancer and Mole Checks

A Skin Cancer and Mole Check is a 30 minute appointment.  It involves a full consultation with the doctor, a full body examination using a dermoscope, and may include dermal imaging of any suspicious moles. 

Cost: $200

Should any skin lesions require biopsy, excision or treatment, this is able to be done in-house and a quote will be provided at the time of the initial skin check.
