The nevi mapping is a process in which recorded the number and exact position of moles in the entire body.
To effect the mapping used digital Dermatoscops, which control the size, shape, contour and color of each nevus. The results of the mapping nevi are stored so the dermatologist is able to monitor any changes in moles over time. Conducting mapping moles at least once a year is very important, as it can detect the first signs of melanoma.
If done early diagnosis, melanoma can be cured.
What are the advantages of mapping in relation to the digital Dermatoscops
The nevi image recorded in great detail.
A change in size or contour of nevi detected before they become perceptible to the naked eye.
Can promptly detect melanoma. The results are stored and can be compared with the next mapping.
Indications that the nevus dysplasia is present.
Abnormal levels Asymmetria-discoloration
Diameter exceeding 6 mm
Bleeding, pain or itching in the region
