In case of surgical removal of a mole or another change of the skin a subsequent histological microscopic analysis is important. This is the only way of excluding malignant findings reliably. We work closely together with the dermahistopathological laboratory of Dermatologikum Hamburg.
Basal cell carcinoma is counted among the most frequent tumour diseases. In the past few decades incidence has increased steadily which can mainly be traced back to excessive sunbathing. Fair-skinned people with skin type I or II are affected particularly frequently. Just for them regular skin cancer checkups are indispensible.
Also the frequency of malignant melanoma has constantly been increasing for years. In particular, people in their middle ages suffer as a consequence. Malignant melanoma can develop in every part of the body. The human torso, and with women, legs are affected most frequently. Here again, a detailed dermatological skin check enables us to detect the disease at an early stage so that the chances of recovery are good.
