Early detection of skin cancer using bodyscan

In Prof. Dr. Okamoto’s office, besides the inspection and follow up of suspicious moles using a digital dermatoscope (or dermoscope), the entire body can be fotographed and saved for future comparisons. This method provides the advantage of detecting changes even of unconspicuous lesions. Moreover, new lesions that emerge over time can be detected more reliably.

This is of importance as skin cancer does not necessarily develop on pre-existing lesions. Whole body scan is particularly useful for patients at higher risk such as those who have been already diagnosed for skin cancer in the past, with high number of moles or a positive family history of melanoma.
