Body Map

The Melbourne Melanoma Project encourages everyone to check their body regularly and to be aware of new or changing moles. Early detection is vital. The use of a simple diagram or body map may be a useful aid to assist with performing a self check of your skin. If you have any moles or lesions which you want to keep a close check on simply map them on the body map diagram, include the date and any other comments.

Refer to the body map the next time you are conducting your skin check. If you notice any changes see your doctor as soon as possible. If you are unsure that a change is occurring a digital photograph repeated after 2 months may be helpful.
