Early detection is crucial!

The organ that is most frequently afflicted with tumours is our skin. Tumour diseases of the skin are on the rise. Ultraviolet light is thereby the most significant contributing factor for the development of malignant tumours, white and black skin cancer. Today, increased exposure to the sun begins early with childhood leisure activities. Early detection of skin tumours can save lives.

What we offer you:

Screening for skin cancer with incidence light microscopy: This is a particularly thorough examination of the entire skin organ from head to toe. This naturally includes the analysis of all pigmented lesions using incidence light microscopy.

Complete check with incidence light microscopy and videography: In addition to our screening for skin cancer, this also includes photographing and examining conspicuous moles and skin changes with computer-aided microscopy (FotoFinder®). This procedure offers optimal diagnostic security in the progressive evaluation of pigmented skin changes and moles. Even the smallest changes can be identified. Skin cancer and its pre-stages are detected at the earliest possible moment.

  • Electronic data storage enables a detailed comparison to previous findings for examinations at a later date.
  • Even minimal optical changes of moles are easy to detect and can be reliably evaluated by the dermatologist.
  • Video documentation reliably prevents the unnecessary removal of moles.

We recommend a complete annual check to everyone of 18 years of age and up, especially those with moles and pigmented lesions.

At Dermatologie des Westens, preventive medical screenings are invoiced as private medical treatments. These costs are unable to be reimbursed by statutory health insurance policies. Private health insurance plans generally reimburse the costs in full.
