Skin cancer is a serious malignant disease that must be treated as soon as possible by dermatology specialists. The best way to address this disease is through prevention.
Skin cancer is the uncontrolled division of the skin cells. It tends to appear in people above the age of 30 years, although it is not exclusive to adults as children can also get it. This disease is associated with:
- Major exposure to the sun.
- Frequent burns.
- People with light-coloured skin.
Skin cancer is characterised by the emergence of gradually-growing skin lesions.
The most frequent symptoms of skin cancer are:
- Moles, sores, protuberances, blemishes, marks or unusual changes in the appearance of an area of the skin.
- A change in the sensation of an area of the skin.
The most basic rule for distinguishing between a suspicious mole and a totally healthy one is the “ABCDE” rule: It consists of:
- A: Asymmetry of the mole.
- B: Presence of irregular or jagged Borders.
- C: Presence of multiple uneven Colours.
- D: A mole with an increased Diameter.
- E: The mole has Evolved over time.
Our dermatologists can perform a meticulous and detailed examination to make an early diagnosis of premalignant lesions and indicate treatment depending on the lesion. To perform this examination, our specialists use the most advanced technology available at this moment in time, namely digital epiluminescence. These non-invasive instruments allow us to explore nevi and moles in real time by means of augmented photographs.
The advantage of digital epiluminescence is that it allows us to monitor possible lesions objectively over time. At subsequent visits, the specialist will be able to compare the evolution of the lesion over time and detect possible changes or characteristics that will tell him or her that a lesion that originally seemed to be benign is now malignant.
Cancer prevention is the best “treatment” currently available, since it enables us to treat and monitor all the areas of the skin that are prone to malignancy.
Prevention every 6 to 7 months is recommended. Nevertheless, the specialist will set the date they deem most convenient for the health of our patients.
