Regular skin cancer screening of moles can reliably assess the health of the skin. Skin cancer screening is an effective, non-painful examination that detects skin cancer at an early stage. This modern form of screening has a significant advantage: skin cancer that is detected early is 100 percent curable!
Skin cancer screening - video documentation briefly explained
In skin cancer screening by video documentation, we use a video camera to make an overview of selected moles and also take microscopic pictures of conspicuous moles. Thanks to the digital storage of all data, changes are clearly recognised and assessed immediately – for your safety.
Skin cancer screening - Which services are covered by health insurance?
Since 01 July 2008, the costs of skin cancer screening (full-body examination with the naked eye) for skin cancer prevention have been covered by the statutory health insurance funds every two years from the age of 35. The video documentation remains fully chargeable to the patient according to the German Medical Fee Schedule (GOÄ). Reflected light microscopy is partially subject to a fee.
