Dr. Reiter specializes in leveraging advanced technologies for the early detection of skin cancer. His expertise encompasses techniques such as dermoscopy and full-body computerized photography, enabling the timely diagnosis and treatment of skin cancer.
Total-skin examination, also known as moles examination, is a procedure where a dermatologist carefully examines the patient’s entire skin, diagnosing all existing lesions, including moles.
Skin cancer is the most prevalent form of cancer in humans. Early detection play a crucial role in achieving successful treatment outcomes. High-risk patients, including those with a personal or family history of skin cancer, multiple moles, fair skin, a history of excessive sun exposure, or a weakened immune system, can greatly benefit from periodic skin exams.
Suspicious skin lesions can be pigmented lesions, i.e. brown-black, or unpigmented – i.e. skin tone up to pink, but the presence of pigment alone cannot indicate the nature of the finding, since skin cancers can be with or without pigment, as can benign lesions which do not require any treatment.
Digital mole mapping entails capturing photographs of the patient’s entire skin surface area. A technician or nurse operates a semi-automatic device, and the patient assumes different positions in front of a camera mounted on a rail. The camera moves up and down, capturing images of the entire skin surface.
Congenital moles or congenital nevi are pigmented skin lesions that are either present at birth or appear shortly thereafter. hese moles are characterized by an increased number of melanocytes, the pigment-producing cells in the skin. They can vary in size, shape, and color, ranging from small and flat to large and raised.
Melanonychia refers to the darkening or pigmentation of the nail plate.
It can be caused by various factors, including trauma, bacterial or fungal infections, systemic diseases, and benign or malignant conditions.
When a skin lesion raises concerns or exhibits suspicious characteristics, dermatologists often recommend a biopsy to accurately diagnose the condition and determine the best course of action. A biopsy involves the extraction and examination of a small sample of the lesion, followed by the removal of the entire lesion if necessary.
