Melanoma is a tumor that develops on the skin from the pigmented nevus. The disease begins to develop painless and does not attract the attention of the patient at its early stages. Only an experienced doctor may suspect developing the disease by the following symptoms of melanoma:

  • Mole changes its size and continues to grow;
  • Crust, harshness, density in nevus area;
  • Mole changes its color or turns red and is inflamed;
  • Focal pathologies are spread;
  • Nevus is bleeding or ulcerating;
  • Pain, itching or burning in the area of changed mole.

Melanoma diagnostics in Turkey

The early diagnostics results in malignant skin oncology arresting and suppression of the metastatic process, returning the patient to regular life with no recurrence of the disease. Diagnostic examinations include:

  • Dermatoscopy, i.e. analysis of changed skin cells under a high-precision microscope;
  • Histologic study after naevus removal within healthy tissues. If the cancerous cells are found, a radical surgery is performed.
  • MRI and CT;
  • PET-CT.

Turkey has world-famous cancer centers, where minimally invasive surgical removal of melanoma by means of advanced surgical techniques are conducted, which is important for the effective treatment and cosmetic effect.

  • After surgical removal of melanoma, Turkish chemotherapists фтв experts in the field of radiation therapy carry out the effective systemic treatment of metastatic process;
  • Turkish cancer surgeons apply the Gamma-Knife and Da Vinci Robotic Systems during the minimally invasive surgeries;
  • Up-to-date schemes of immunotherapy, when immune cells of the body destroy the tumor cells with particular drugs, are applied to stop the advance of the disease.
