MoleExpert Home - Software for Early Detection of Melanoma

American Skin Cancer Foundation recommends monthly self-examination[1]

Mole mapping software for skin self-examination - for home use only

Use your photos to find new spots or to identify the growth of pigmented skin lesions. The software compares a baseline and a follow-up image.

System Requirements: Microsoft Windows 7 / 8 / 8.1 / 10


Currently, software licenses are only available as part of research projects. Inquiries from private individuals can unfortunately not be considered.

Using the software


  • Melanoma is almost always curable when it is found early
  • Melanoma can develop from a normal part of skin (~80% of cases), or from an existing mole (~20% of cases)[2]
  • From 1970 to 2009, the number of melanoma patients increased by 800 percent among young women and 400 percent among young men[3]
  • Melanoma is the most common cancer in America among women 20 to 29 years[4]
  • In America 1 in 50 persons will be diagnosed with melanoma of the skin during lifetime[5]


Windows 7 or Windows 10 is required to run the software. The analysis works only with images of good quality. Baseline photos and follow-up photos must be taken under nearly identical conditions. Images must contain at least five pigmented spots. A minimum resolution of 1024x768 is required. A higher resolution is recommended, maximum is 24 Megapixel (6016 x 4000 pixels).

This software version is for personal use. Commercial use is not allowed.


The assessment is for informational purpose only and cannot replace a regular mole check at your skin doctor.

Since the growth of spots is not the only criterion for melanoma detection, you should also be aware of the other factors of the ABCDE rule. For detailed instructions please check

Although the software is very sensitive, changes cannot be seen in some rare cases. Therefore, in addition to automatic also a visual inspection of the images is necessary.

The MoleExpert Home software cannot be used for the analysis of freckles. Image file management and the selection of an appropriate time period for follow-up photographs are in the responsibility of the user. A maximum time difference between baseline and follow-up image of two years is recommended.

  • Surveillance program for early detection of melanoma
  • Chances for long-term survival are excellent, when melanoma is detected and treated early
  • Change in the size, shape, or color of an existing mole might be a sign for melanoma
  • Melanoma also may appear as a new, black, abnormal mole
  • MoleExpert Home is the software for skin self-examination
  • MoleExpert Pro is mole mapping software for dermatologists and health professionals


  • examination of skin lesions with a dermatoscope (special magnifier)
  • also referred as dermoscopy
  • technique is primarily used by dermatologists and health care professionals
  • allows inspection of skin and monitoring skin lesions suspicious of melanoma
  • MoleExpert Micro is dermatoscopy software for health professionals
