Welcome

   

I’m Anita Varga, M.D. I have been working at the Department of Dermatology and Allergology’s onco-dermatology department at the University of Szeged since 2008. Currently I’m the director of the Onco-dermatology inpatient department. I’m working in the field of dermatology, and most of all specializing in dermato-oncology related skin issues for e.g. skin cancer. Since 2008, I have participated in a number of international clinical trials, mainly in the treatment of advanced metastatic melanoma (dye cell tumor). In addition, I consider the prevention to be crucially important with regular skin cancer screening and mole checking.

Regular skin cancer screening is important

I consider it important to regularly perform skin cancer screening, giving you the chance to recognize the skin tumors as early as possible and to initiate proper treatment.

It is generally recommended to check nevi every year, but people with a large amount of irregular nevus, are adviced to come back more often for control. Besides the specialist’s check, you can also be a great help if you check your moles regularly for yourself at home. Please visit your dermatologist if you notice a change, as soon as possible.

Light colored skin, blue eyes, red or blond hair or if you have a history of skin tumors in your family, may increase the risk of developing malignant melanoma.

Early detected skin tumors are highly likely to be cured.

Advanced malignant melanoma may provide internal metastasis requiring complex oncological treatment (surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, immunoncotherapy, targeted therapy).

What can you do for prevention?

  • Regular self-examination
  • Avoid direct sunlight during the noon hours (10 a.m. to 4 p.m.)
  • Use of sunscreen (sunscreen) with a high factor number (also protects against UVA and UVB radiation) according to the skin type
  • Apply UV filter sunglasses, head-covering and clothing
  • Avoid using the solarium
  • Annual skin cancer screening at moderate risk (since childhood)
