What is dermoscopy?

What is dermoscopy?

Dermoscopy is a technique for examining the appearance of the skin – ordinary skin as well as moles – to diagnose skin problems. Although dermoscopy can be helpful in all forms of skin diagnosis, it is particularly helpful for the diagnosis of skin cancer, particularly melanoma.

Why is Melanoma so dangerous?

Why is Melanoma so dangerous?

Because if a melanoma grows just a fraction of a millimetre too deep, its much harder to stop. Before we talk about why that is, lets get into some biology. Melanoma is a cancer of the melanocytes, which are cells that produce a pigment called melanin. Melanin gives colour to the skin, hair and eyes. Melanocytes can also form moles, where melanomas can develop. Although most moles do not become cancerous, its important to spot the rare ones that do.

Our Aims

Our Aims
