Here is a non-exhaustive list of scalp diseases: cyst, prominent nevus, melanoma, seborrheic dermatitis, lichen planus pilaris, frontal fibrosis alopecia, psoriasis, discoid lupus erythematosus. In addition, the scalp can be affected by parasitic diseases such as ringworm or trauma caused by accidents, burns or surgery.
In some cases, these pathologies will need to be treated quickly to prevent their development into a more serious condition or the permanent destruction of the hair follicles. In other cases, mainly cysts, prominent nevi or scars, the patient may wish to have them removed for practical or aesthetic reasons.
This is why the CMCC employs dermatologists who specialize in scalp surgery. Each procedure requires a clinical examination and, if necessary, the results of a hair biopsy. The objective is to allow the doctor to accurately identify the cause of the patient’s pathology in order to establish a tailor-made treatment.
Today, the CMCC offers its patients :
- dermatological treatments for inflammatory diseases of the scalp
- surgical removal of malignant or benign scalp tumors
- econstructive surgery in case of scalp trauma
