Skin cancer is one of our most common cancers. Detected early, it is easily removed, too late it takes lives. Melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, is extremely difficult to treat if caught late but easy to treat if caught early.

The MOLE Clinic™ is the UK’s leading independent and award-winning centre for screening and diagnosis of skin cancer. Their TELEDerm technology for mole screening is a winner of the Patient Safety Award and widely used by NHS GPs.

Tesco Pharmacists now offer the TELEDerm technology enabling Tesco customers to have their moles imaged using teledermoscopy, a non-invasive technique which captures illuminated and highly magnified images beneath the surface of moles for diagnosis by MOLE Clinic skin specialists.
