Title: Qualitative optical evaluation of malignancies related to cutaneous phototype
Keywords: skin autofluorescence, cutaneous phototype, endogenous chromophores, cutaneous carcinoma

Abstract: The spectral techniques used for the early diagnosis of skin cancer provide researchers with diagnostically important characteristics, usually in the process of comparing signals received from normal and damaged skin areas. This study presents some initial fluorescence results for early detection of skin tumors. However, due to the wide variety of optical properties the spectral distributions of the hromophores of "normal" skin may have visible differences between them. Diagnostically relevant characteristics, such as an intensity and occurrence of specific minima or maxima obtained in the measured in vivo spectra , depend on the anatomical position, age, skin phototype.Therefore, the development of objective differentiation algorithms for the early diagnosis of skin pathologies will strongly depend on our understanding - what is the impact of major fluorophores and absorbers on the spectra observed in defined as "healthy" skin areas and how these spectral features could affect
