Question: A family member was recently diagnosed with a melanoma on their scalp and I’d like to know how to examine this area in between annual checks with my doctor?
Dr Coe: Even though melanoma is not as common on the neck or scalp, these cancers still account for up to eight percent of all melanomas diagnosed. Men in New Zealand are twice as likely to get a melanoma on their head or neck as Kiwi women. The best way to undertake a self-skin cancer check of important areas, such as the scalp, is with the assistance of a friend or family member, who can help examine those hard to see areas - including your ears and neck too. Ask your family member or friend to use a hairdryer and a comb to make parts in your hair, a little at a time, starting at one ear and working your way to the other ear. Then check the back of your neck, top of your forehead, around your hairline, the back of and inside your ears. Make sure your doctor or skin specialist includes your scalp during regular checks and if you notice anything of concern during a self-check, make an appointment with a doctor to have it addresed as early as possible. Call the team at MoleMan today to enquire about full body skin cancer and melanoma checks with digital dermoscopy (mole mapping) technology on 0800 DR MOLE (376653) or 09 480 6416.
