Creating an individual “nevus record”

 

Creating an individual “nevus record” is based on electronic dermatoscopy results. Electronic dermatoscopy allows to receive the highest quality photo of the skin neoplasm that is dozens of times more than the neoplasm itself. After the detailed analysis of the photo, dermato-oncologist describes it, provides his/her own opinion and recommendations. This information is saved in the individual patient’s database or so-called individual “nevus record”. When the patient applies again, dermato-oncologist can see the minimum changes of this or that specific skin neoplasm in dynamics.

The importance of individual “nevus record” is difficult to overestimate. Many “harmless” skin neoplasm are in fact the skin cancer precursors. Dynamic observation of the neoplasm changes allows to provide the timely diagnostic of the problem and take all the necessary measures.

The key indications for dermascopy and “nevus record” creating are:

  • any spot or pimple appearing on the healthy skin and having skin-toned, red, brown or black color;
  • the increasing number of pigment spots or moles;
  • the growing size of the prevalent mole, its redensificaton or lack of clear even borders;
  • trauma of the mole;
  • itching or slight tingling in the pigment spot area;
  • non-uniform change of the mole color as well as its partial or complete disappearing.

If you have at least 2 of the abovementioned criterion you must apply for the derma-oncologist’s advice and have dermatoscopic examination.

Dermatoscopia should be performed and individual “nevus record” should be made with prevention purposes for the following categories of patients:

  • people with fair skin (blond or red-haired people as well as those who never has a good suntan or prone to sun burns);
  • those who have a lot of freckles and dark moles;
  • hereditary tainted patients for oncology on the whole and for melanoma and skin cancer in particular;
  • all the women continuously taking peroral hormonal contraceptives for longer than 1 year;
  • pregnant and nursing mothers;
  • people working in chemical, oil and other hazardous production environment;
  • everyone leaving for the South or hot countries.
