Not everyone believes things because they are true. Most of the time, people believe what they want to believe, regardless of the truth. It's a weird notion, but it happens. After all, one's model of reality may sometimes be so wildly different from the reality that deluding themselves seems a lot easier than accepting the painful truth. If this is only in theory, it's fine, but the fact is, even when it comes to our health, we seem quite able to delude ourselves really well.
The good and bad news: Overdiagnosis of skin cancer is a common first-world problem. The good news, Spectra-Scope can help stop it. Screening and diagnosis of cancer have advanced well over the past decade. An article published in the New England Journal of Medicine had several doctors and researchers looking into the explosion of melanoma diagnosis claim that we are now six times more likely to be diagnosed with melanoma compared to how it was 40 years ago. Is this overdiagn
Skin cancer has always seemed like something so far-fetched and not so life-threatening, so it’s easy for most of us to just brush it off. This is especially evident in the fact that a lot of people only wear sunscreen when they’re at the beach. That a lot of men also readily take off their shirts when they feel hot is yet another proof that they aren’t very particular with their skin. After all, what can a few harmless moles and sunburn do? This is where the problems lie. Wi
Spend enough time cooped up at home with nothing much to do, and you’re bound to look at every single mole with worry, and for good reason. After all, every mole differs from each other. It is not wrong to be concerned, especially if you notice any worrisome change. It is for this very reason that Speclipse, a medical device manufacturer, created the Spectra-Scope to help ease worries about potential skin cancer as fast as humanely possible and without the drawbacks. Overwhel
Diagnosis of skin cancer requires a series of tests using specific tools or devices. Most of the time it even requires a biopsy. Skin cancer can be diagnosed both via visual or dermatoscopic inspection and biopsy or surgical inspection, and yield either of two results: positive (suspicious) or negative, which translate to being diseased or healthy and free from whatever condition of interest they are testing for. Let's think of a skin cancer diagnosis here. The process itself
Moles are a normal part of life. Normal adults can have up to 40 harmless, common moles, usually in areas exposed to the sun. That said, they are rarely found on the scalp, breasts, or buttocks. Although moles are often non-cancerous, having over 50 moles may mean an increased risk of developing melanoma. Some kinds also pose a higher risk, though there are some telltale signs that it is time to see a doctor to get checked. Here are some of the things you should watch out for
Knowing the risk of skin cancer earlier, and periodic diagnosis by the healthcare professional is essential in skin cancer prevention and management. Here is a risk assessment containing 10 questionnaires, and you are expected to respond with a YES or a NO to describe your condition. [SELF-ASSESSMENT TO KNOW THE RISK OF SKIN CANCER] 1. Are you 60 years old or older? 2. Do you have blue or green eyes or blond or red hair? 3. Do you have a naturally light skin color? 4. Do you
