That’s why it’s worth looking at our moles

It is a general suggestion that the ideal time for mole screening is in the fall and spring months. Many do not perform mole screening during the summer months because if one of the moles needs to be removed, it is more difficult to provide the light protection needed for ideal wound healing. However, Dr. Ildikó Vincze, a dermatologist-cosmetologist and chief physician of the Birth Screening Center, warns that those who have not been involved in birth control for a long time should not delay the examination, because late-onset melanoma may be at risk for distant metastases.

Metastases can take months to develop

Melanoma is a malignant proliferation of pigment cells in the skin, one of the most aggressive forms of tumors. It can linger for a long time, meaning it is present as an imperceptible lesion in the moles or in a newly formed dye lesion.

Below the surface, however, in the deeper layers of the skin, it has already begun to expand. If the vertical division of the pigment cells reaches the deeper, dermal layer of the skin, it can enter the lymphatic stream from there, which can easily lead to metastases. It is therefore very important to recognize and remove melanoma at an early stage for complete recovery.

How often is screening recommended?

Usually, the annuality we usually recommend to patients, but this can vary from individual to individual, says dr. Ildikó Vincze. If someone is in the risk group, so they have light skin and hair, or have many birthmarks, melanoma in their family, more often, even half a quarter of a year, birth control may be warranted.

ABCDE rule: when it is advisable to consult a doctor out of turn

In the case of certain lesions that are visible to the naked eye, the examination should not be delayed. These symptoms are indicated in English by the summary name ABCDE:

  • A asymmetry – how irregular has the shape of the mole changed?
  • B as a border – blurred border or sharply separated from its surroundings?
  • C as color – homogeneous or show different shades?
  • D as diameter – Births larger than 6mm have a higher risk of melanoma.
  • Is it like evolving – is there any change in time, color, size, surface?

Full body map birth control

Melanoma can appear anywhere on the entire body surface, not just on parts of the body exposed to the sun, so a thorough examination is very important. If you are unsure of what you saw during the self-examination, we ask for the help of a specialist out of turn – advises dr. Ildikó Vincze. “Unlike several types of cancer, melanoma is a risk not only in old age but also in young adults. Melanoma is the leading cause of death among women in their 20s and 30s, while recognizing and treating it at an early stage could lead to a complete cure. Today, we have state-of-the-art help for this, such as a full body map birth control, with which we can document even the smallest lesions and monitor them, so that we can remove malignant growths at any time, regardless of the season, if necessary. ”
