Prevention of skin cancer
Skin cancer is one of the most frequent cancerous diseases. It can almost always be treated successfully if recognised early enough. Over the years the average age of those who suffer from skin cancer has fallen. Now even more young adults are affected. People with a large number of pigmented moles and with a family history of skin cancer, people who often spent their holidays in sunny regions when they were children, had sun burns frequently or visited solariums on a regular basis belong to the group of people at risk.
With the help of the most up-to-date computer-assisted diagnostics (so called Photofinders) suspicious pigmented moles can be precisely portrayed and assessed in detail. Findings are saved and compared with new images taken later.
