Skin cancer has increased sixfold during the last 50 years! Today skin cancer belongs to the most commonly occuring malignant tumors. Risk faktor No.1!
This applies not only to the black skin cancer - the malignant melanoma - but to all other types of skin cancer, like basal cell carcinoma, squamous-cell carcinoma (SCC or SqCC).
The Association of Dermatological Prevention recommends having your skin checked once a year by a dermatologist. The screening includes a thorough and comprehensive examination of the skin by a specialist - meaning you should be checked from head to toe. In addition, it might be necessary to examine the individual pigmented moles under a light microscope. If the examination shows that a birthmark has turned cancerous, there are very good chances for a cure provided the cancerous mole is detected in an early stage.
