Regular check-ups of moles to prevent skin cancer

By David Pacheco Castellano, Dermatologist at Clínica Principal

HEALTH & WELLNESSThe summer season is approaching and the tendency to visit our marvellous Fuerteventura beaches increases in order to get our skin in the sun to achieve a nice suntan.

This is when we notice our stains and moles and when the media is providing us with information about the necessity of solar protection and the risks of skin cancer. If we notice any kind of change that starts to alarm or preoccupy us, we should consult a specialist for the evaluation of our skin.

Objectively, skin tumours increase every year; especially melanoma that is the cause of 90% of deaths in skin cancer patients. Thankfully, with an early diagnosis, there is a 95% chance of survival. Patients who comply with the following criteria should have their moles checked: If they have suffered from a melanoma before If they have more than 50 moles or various ones that are atypical If they have a fair complexion (person with light eyes, light skin with blond or red hair, mostly)

If they have close relatives who have had a melanoma If they have a low immune system because of medicine or an illness If they have had sunburn during childhood, especially if it caused blisters This is why prevention is essential and this is where a dermatologist plays an important role as he is a qualified specialist in diagnosis and can teach the required preventive measures to avoid the appearance of this type of tumour.
