Früherkennung von Hautkrebs 2016

Participation in Switzerland’s National Skin Cancer Awareness Campaign (30 May – 3 June 2015)

Every third person will develop skin cancer in their lifetime.  If the cancer is detected at an early stage and removed, almost all patients will be completely cured.

Skin experts and specialists are all of the opinion that early detection of skin cancer is vital and can be lifesaving.

From 30 May to 3 June 2015, Switzerland’s dermatologists offered free preliminary examinations of prominent birthmarks and moles.  The derma competence center participated fully in this program, and carried out over 50 examinations.  Every second examination found reason to carry out further dermatological testing.
