Due to the increased incidence of cutaneous melanoma, a method was sought to diagnose the early forms of this type of cancer, which would allow for timely removal and help to ensure a complete cure. Advances in pre-operative diagnostics have been made thanks to the introduction of dermatoscopy. This test is performed using a portable, specially constructed microscope that allows us to see skin lesions at a magnification of 10-60 times, and videodermatoscopy with a magnification of up to 100 times. This has significantly increased the accuracy of the evaluation and diagnosis of pigmented nevi, as well as distinguished them from other, similar-looking skin lesions.
This test is painless and requires no prior patient preparation.
