Dermatoscope is a medical device used for the diagnosis of moles.
The diagnosis of a malignant type of skin cancer belongs to complicated medical examinations that should be done only by professional experts in that field. Therefore, the examination is done by a dermatologist. Firstly, he/she examines the mole with the naked eye and afterwards with a special magnifying device – dermatoscope.
A typical melanoma starts as a mole that changes its structure, shape, size, and colour or a mole that is asymmetric, bleeds or itches. Dermatoscope illuminates and enlarges images in its view, allowing for the visualization of ultrastructural features. TOMAR offers dermatoscopic examinations all year round. The treatment of moles is painless and therefore you should not hesitate and undergo the examination as soon as possible. The early detection is vital and can reduce the risk of advanced types of skin cancer or in the most serious of cases death.
