EARLY DIAGNOSIS OF SKIN CANCER AND FOLLOW-UP OF MOLES
Digital Dermoscopy Device

It is used in Ben scanning and tracking.

With this device, which plays a major role in the early diagnosis of skin cancer, spot localization is determined by creating a map of moles in the body. The dermoscopic image is then taken and recorded for each mole. The chance of early stage skin cancer being diagnosed with the naked eye is less than 90% with this method.

Skin cancer, called “malignant melanoma” in medical parlance, originates from cells that give color to the skin and progresses very quickly. Skin cancer is one of the fastest growing types of cancer in the world. 30% of skin cancer lesions develop over I, while 70% occur on a normal skin background. It can be effectively treated when diagnosed at an early stage. Early diagnosis of skin cancer with the diagnosis and follow-up of moles is carried out with a computerized mole scanning device.

Medical foot care is foot care performed for both health and aesthetic appearance, which is performed specifically for a person’s foot problem.

According to the need, the necessary treatment is carried out in podology rooms, where disinfection is provided, with the help of micromotors with sterilized instruments in operating room standards.

As a result of cosmetic treatments such as false menicures and pedicures performed in some patient groups, the nail is ingrown, fungus, nail disfigurement, intense hyperkeratosis occurs under the nail. Medical foot care begins by cutting the correct nail, Calluses under the Nail, nail surfaces, hyperkerethosis and calluses on the skin of the foot are carefully cleaned with milling machines. The care is completed by massaging the feet with appropriate creams.

Diabetes patients should have regular foot care
Diabetes, from a lifetime, is a disease that requires careful control. Patients with diabetes are more likely to have problems with their feet than others. Diabetic foot problems are a difficult and important health problem to treat. Failure to maintain blood sugar control in the long term causes nerve endings to be damaged, i.e. neuropathy (loss of sensation). Stinging, burning, freezing may not be noticed when there is loss of sensation. Muscles lose flexibility, disfigurement occurs in the toes and base. As a result of the failure of the oil and sweat glands in the foot, dryness and cracks develop on the skin. During the day, friction and injuries in the feet that carry our pain form calluses, and over time ulcers occur due to the lack of bleeding in the soft tissue. Nail stinging, nail fungus, nail disfigurement and thickening can be seen due to circulatory disorders on the nails.

Among those who need regular foot care are athletes, pregnant women, and those who have to wear heels, except for diabetes patients. Regular foot examination and care should be done to podologists 1 time a month. After podologists conduct a foot examination every 6 months, with 3 different tests ( monofilament, vibration and hot-cold), the problem in the foot is controlled and regular care is provided by looking at whether there is loss of sensation, if it is found, how far it has progressed. If necessary, patients are referred to dermatology and orthopedics specialists.
