- Clinical Dermatology: Prevention and early diagnosis of skin cancer. Given the alarming increase in melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer in recent years and its presentation at younger and younger ages, it is advisable to go to the dermatologist at least once a year for a full examination of the skin and moles. The specialists in Dermatology of Hospital Quirónsalud Costa Adeje have new techniques very useful to diagnose accurately and reliably, verify the cure and perform a monitored follow-up of recurrences and the appearance of premalignant lesions or tumor lesions in initial stages.
- Manual dermatoscopy: allows to analyze pigmented lesions, identify suspicious lesions, evaluate their evolution over time by comparing the images and diagnose early melanoma and other premalignant or tumoral lesions. This is a very useful technique also for the follow-up of patients at risk and the early identification of second neoplasms.
