skin cancers

There are different types of skin cancer:


Basaliomas are the most common malignant skin tumors in humans. They belong to white skin cancer and do not spread. Their appearance ranges from pink plaques to lumps that may also bleed or become crusted. The  treatment consists of a complete removal of the basal cell carcinoma with histological examination of all cut edges. 


Spinalioma look similar to basalioma and tend to occur in areas that are exposed to a lot of sunlight. They mostly appear in old age. Here, too, the aim is the complete removal of the tumor with subsequent histological examination.


Melanoma is a malignant skin tumor that spreads via the lymphatic and bloodstream at an early stage. Early detection in a thin growth stage through regular skin cancer screening significantly improves the chances of success of the treatment. Especially thin melanomas often resemble harmless moles or pigment spots. Therefore, many years of experience as a dermatologist is important in order to detect black skin cancer at an early stage. 

Thin forms are removed with a safety margin, in the case of thicker melanomas, the so-called sentinel lymph node, which monitors the respective skin area, is also removed. After the operation, there is a close follow-up check.
