Melanoma is one of the fastest spreading lesions. Melanoma is curable if it is diagnosed in
early stages. If melanoma is diagnosed in early stages, the curability reaches about 90 percent of patients. In other hand if melanoma is diagnosed in late stages, then curability is less than 50 percent. In order to reach better curing result it is not enough to diagnose the disease, but there is permanent monitoring needed before ant after procedures. In this website you will find information about melanoma from technical side. Lets say, how lesions are dedicated, how photographed and what do doctors do to make a diagnose. There are many techniques of doing melanoma diagnoses. The most widely used by dermatologists is ABCD(E) rule, where skin images are taken and then shape, color and structure analysis of lesion is made. This rule is so simple, that everyone can do it by himself, bu of course, you can’t make a diagnose, because there are so many exceptions and other things you don’t know, and therefore you can be mistaken. For example your lesion can look very suspicious and dark, but it can be benign and in other hand, lesion can be very small and almost unnoticeable, but it can be a skin cancer. Later I will add few articles about how ABCD rule works, and you can inspect your skin at home. But of course, if you are concerned about them is better to visit dermatologist’s.
My articles there are only reviews form my sight, and don’t take it too serious as I am not a doctor. I don’t take any responsibilities as this information is for knowing purposes.
