Skin Cancer Model

This skin cancer model presents both healthy skin and five different stages of malignant melanoma on the front and back, which have been enlarged to 8 times life-size for easier study. The stages presented are as follows:

  • healthy
  • malignant cells are found at the surface, within the epidermis
  • malignant cells fill the epidermis, a few invade the papillary layer
  • malignant cells fill the papillary layer
  • malignant cells invade the reticular layer
  • malignant cells have reached the subcutaneous fatty tissue, satellite cells approach a vein

  • The top view of this skin cancer model reveals external visible skin changes, allowing for an assessment according to the "ABCDE" criteria. While the side of the model features the different levels of invasion into the skin layers according to Clark (I-V) and the tumour thickness in mm according to Breslow. Included on the base are five colour illustrations of types of malignant melanomas making this model an ideal skin pathology educational tool.
