Skin cancer screening

Skin cancer screening

What is skin cancer screening?

A skin cancer screening is a preventive examination in which your skin is examined from head to toe. The aim is to detect black (malignant melanoma) and light skin cancer (basal cell and squamous cell carcinoma) at an early stage. Because: The earlier a skin cancer is detected, the gentler and more successful it can be treated.

Who should have skin cancer screening and at what time interval?

Regardless of whether you have fair or dark skin - this examination makes sense for everyone. As a person with statutory health insurance, you are entitled to a skin cancer check-up every two years from the age of 35 by a dermatologist or qualified family doctor.

What is included in the skin cancer screening?

The examination starts with an interview in which you will be asked if anyone in your family has ever had skin cancer and if you have noticed any skin changes recently.

Afterwards, your skin will be examined from head to toe, whereby you will of course have to gradually undress for this. Since your scalp and nails will also be examined, it is important not to wear any make-up or nail polish on the day of the examination.

Finally, you will go through the results with your doctor: he/she will advise you on your individual skin cancer risk and you will receive important information on how you can protect your skin.
If the doctor finds abnormal skin changes, the results will be discussed with a dermatologist and further diagnostic steps will be taken.

What should I do?

To check whether this preliminary examination makes sense for you, simply make an appointment at one of our Avi practices and discuss with our team of doctors. Here you can discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the examinations together and take your individual risk into account.

Good to know: Skin cancer screening is covered by your health insurance every two years from the age of 35. Some health insurance companies also cover screening before the age of 35. However, please check with your insurance company in advance whether this examination is covered by Avi Medical.
