clinic Hůrka polyclinic

  • Each patient undergoes a detailed clinical and dermatoscopic examination of skin moles during the initial examination
  • Depending on your skin type and the number of moles, we will recommend how often mole checks are needed and advise you on the appropriate type of sun protection (photoprotection).
  • We place great emphasis on the prevention of skin tumours
  • For diagnostics we use a special DermLite DL3N – 3Gen dermatoscope with state-of-the-art illumination technology that provides a clear and deep view of pigmented lesions for easier early detection of dysplastic nevi, melanomas and non-melanoma skin tumors. A great advantage is that in our clinic we can remove the risky manifestations and have them histologically examined in a very short time.

How do I know I have a suspicious mole?

We should be alert when we notice a change in shape, colour, border or rapid growth on a mole, moles larger than 5 mm should also be checked. A warning sign is bleeding, itching or soreness of the skin manifestation, but unfortunately it is often a symptom of an already advanced skin tumour. Since individual skin cancers can manifest themselves very differently, it is important to have regular preventive mole examinations by a dermatologist.

By law, everyone over the age of 18 is entitled to a cancer-preventive mole examination every 2 years as part of the general preventive examination, although it is preferable to have moles checked every year, even for children, and twice a year for people at risk. People at risk are the aforementioned fair-skinned people, those who have a direct family history of skin cancer, frequent sunbathing or extended periods of time in tropical areas, and anyone with a history of skin cancer that has already been detected and treated (e.g. melanoma has up to 10 times the risk of developing another melanoma).
