Moles - should they get checked?

Spent a number of years as a child in East Africa, where the family were careful about protection from the sun. Nevertheless, I have some moles (which are not troubling me) and have never had them checked. Is it a good idea to have a mole check, and if so where in London would be a good place to go for one?

Re: Moles - should they get checked?

Sounds like you have had a significant amount of sun exposure, so it would be a good idea to get them checked. All consultant dermatologists will be able to check your moles, so you can search for one local to you. Or alternatively, see if your GP can help. Good luck!
