A qualified doctor can set the diagnosis based on the appearance of skin changes, basing it on the knowledge of the combination of different criteria, and on algorithms designed in recent years.
Mole mapping – dermatoscopy
Using an electronic dermatoscope (Fotofinder), a doctor reviews, take pictures and saves the pictures of moles. Repeat imaging of these after a certain amount of time allows us to compare the current state with an older image and to identify changes, which may lead to the formation of dangerous skin lesions. In such cases, surgical removal is advised, along with an histological analysis.
