I get it done in Australia. There are mole clinics all over the place. I even take my American wife there who was astonished at high quality of care and level of treatment; FYI Skin Cancer is heading towards being the 3rd or 4th common cause of death in Australia in the next decade - my cousin just lost a 40 year old wife to it - she was gone in 8 weeks. I would not bother in Asia.

I had the screening done and actually even one "mole" removed at the National Skin Centre. Probably one of my very few encounters with the local medical services where I had no complaints. It was long time ago though.
