Frequently asked questions
What is a Total Body Skin Examination (TBSE) and how does it work?
It involves examining the skin "from head to toe" using manual and digital dermatoscopy. During the examination, the patient is first in their underwear on a bed, then sitting, while individual images of moles are digitized and evaluated.
How much does the examination cost?
This service costs 2700 CZK. For online reservations, full payment is required at the time of booking. All clients are responsible for paying for these examinations; these procedures are not covered by our contractual agreements with insurance companies. Contributions from health insurance can be used for these examinations. Please inquire about the current terms and programs offered by your specific health insurance provider to fully utilize contributions for prevention and healthcare.
How can I make a reservation?
What happens if mole removal is recommended?
The patient will be given a date for a surgical procedure to remove the mole. Subsequently, a histological examination of the mole is performed. Further steps are recommended based on the results of histology. In the case of advanced melanoma detection, the patient is referred to a melanoma center for further oncological treatment.
Can I have a mole removed for aesthetic reasons?
Yes, especially if it is a repeatedly traumatized mole that is bothersome. In some cases, however, the doctor may dissuade the patient from mole removal, particularly if it could result in an aesthetically unpleasing scar. Each case is assessed individually.
I was found to have a higher risk of developing certain tumors, including skin cancer, through genetic testing. How often do I need to undergo preventive mole examinations?
Examinations in the general population should occur annually, in some cases biannually, especially if there is a higher risk of developing skin tumors or if there is a family history of frequent tumors, including skin cancer, etc. This applies particularly to patients with a high number of moles, a family history of melanoma, light skin phototype, or after repeated sunburns. For patients who have undergone genetic testing to determine the level of risk of oncological diagnoses, examinations are recommended individually according to the specific risk. It is always necessary to consult with your oncogeneticist or the attending physician of the hereditary mutation clinic.
What is dermatoscopy?
Dermatoscopy is a non-invasive instrumental examination method that allows us to visualize structures that are not visible to the naked eye. In some cases, we use digital dermatoscopy, including the latest software that allows mathematical analysis, sharing, and comparing of acquired data, as well as utilizing telemedicine capabilities.
