At the University Medical Center Freiburg, events for patients are held on a regular basis to provide information on the latest developments in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Current events and interesting past events on the topic of skin cancer for patients can be found here.
Events for doctors you find here (in German).

Support Groups

Self-help groups of people with the same disease offer a self-determined exchange of information and experience without professional guidance as well as mutual emotional support. Members of self-help groups are experts in their own right and often have a high degree of "lay competence". Learn more

Diagnosis, Treatment, & Trials

An important part of our work is prevention and education to ensure that skin cancer has no chance to develop in the first place. We use various methods for the diagnosis of all types of skin tumors: reflected-light microscopy, histological examination, skin and lymph node ultrasound, and imaging methods. We treat skin tumors with an interdisciplinary approach, including operative therapy, non-operative therapy methods, immunotherapy, chemotherapy, targeted tumor therapy, and/or radiotherapy. Regular follow-up examinations help keep your mind at ease. Find out more (in German)
