The Skin Cancer Stages Model is an anatomy model from 3B Scientific and manufactured in Germany. This 3B Scientific Skin Pathology model shows healthy skin and 5 different stages of malignant melanoma on the front and back, enlarged 8 times:
* 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
In the top view of the skin cancer model, the individual stages of externally visible skin changes are shown, allowing for an assessment according to the ABCDE criteria. The sides of the skin cancer model show the various levels of invasion into the skin layers according to Clark (I-V) and the tumor thickness according to Breslow (in mm). 5 original color illustrations on the base of the skin cancer model show various types of malignant melanomas. The skin cancer model comes mounted on a base.

The skin cancer model is a great tool for illustrating this skin pathology

    Decent Representation of Stages of Skin Cancer

    Posted by Lori on Nov 13th 2017

    This model does a fine job of showing the progression of a malignant melanoma. It also has photographs that represent the ABCDE method of evaluating suspicious moles. For a general detailed skin model, I would go with one the other models that anatomy stocks. This particular model lacks sweat glands, melanocytes, and some of the sebaceous gland and hair follicle details that other models on this site have.
