However, surgical removal, especially in children, should only be carried out if the affected area actually contains a risk factor. In order to be able to recognize this without surgery, confocal laser microscopy is a good option after incident light microscopy. With the confocal laser microscope, the cell tissue under the skin surface can be made visible and examined for malignant structures at a magnification of 1,000 times without pain or risky radiation. In this way, the earliest changes and preliminary stages of skin cancer can be detected in time. And extracted if necessary.
