Guide on how to take a useful photograph to help your doctor diagnose your condition – here are a few rules of thumb that will make it much easier for your doctor to be able to make a diagnosis:
1 Adequate lighting – Please make sure the area is well lit, Not flooded with light but enough light to make the area clear to see and stand out from the surrounding skin (e.g. mole on arm).
2 Use a plain background – a light coloured sheet or a light coloured wall is ideal.
3 Some sort of scale – It is important to be able to tell the size of lesion, so place a tape measure or ruler alongside it is helpful, or something like a 5p or 10p piece coin.
