Skin screening

A preventive medical examination for skin cancer can be claimed from age 35 onward every 2 years.

With a simple examination, a doctor can recognise alterations at an early stage that may possibly be a malignant melanoma. Only at that stage can a doctor remove the cancer with an uncomplicated operation. The doctor will perform a thorough examination and advise the patient whether some skin alterations need to be monitored very carefully, while others do not because there is currently no suspicion of a malignant skin disease.
