Examination of the mole with a dermatoscope
The skin changes throughout our lives, and so do moles. They increase or change color, and any sudden change in the appearance of the mole can be risky.
Moles are found on the skin of every human being. With some we are born, while some arise during life.
Dermatoscopy is a painless diagnostic method, which uses a dermatoscope to increase the field of view with polarized or unpolarized light.
When do we recommend a mole examination?
Dermatoscopic examination of moles is recommended in case of sudden appearance of new moles, change of already existing moles and the appearance of various symptoms such as itching or bleeding within the lesion, because these symptoms may indicate a malignant transformation.
