Your skin is your body’s largest organ, continuously exposed to harmful environmental factors such as sun radiation. In the past decades, there has been a steady increase in the incidence of skin cancer.
Melanoma rates are on the rise in recent years in all western societies. Melanoma is the most dangerous type of skin cancer arising from pigment-producing melanocytes of the epidermis. If melanoma is recognized and treated early, it is almost always curable, but if it is not, it can advance and spread to other parts of the body.
Nonmelanoma skin cancer refers to all the types of cancer that occur in the skin that are not melanoma, the most common being the basal cell carcinoma and the squamous cell carcinoma.
As skin oncology has been over a decade on our clinical focus we are proud to offer our patients a wide spectrum of state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic approaches ranging from expert clinical evaluation, dermoscopy and digital mole mapping to diagnostic skin biopsies, innovative topical and photodynamic treatments of superficial skin tumors and surgical excision of infiltrative tumors, always in line with international guidelines and tailored to the patient’s needs.
