Pigment changes - Aren't they birthmarks?

A pigment change can have different faces. The classic pigment changes include freckles, age spots and birthmarks. It is not always obvious to a layperson whether the pigment change is benign or malignant. A visit to the doctor is advisable in any case.

In our practice, we rely on careful diagnostics by means of reflected-light microscopy or tissue sampling to rule out the possibility that the pigment change is a precancerous lesion or even skin cancer.
