Introduction of skin cancer screening?

Since 2008, skin cancer screening has been available in Germany for all policyholders aged 35 and over. As a result, many cases of skin cancer are detected earlier. DP MPs André Bauler and Gilles Baum wanted to know from the Minister for Health how skin cancer figures have developed here in the country since 2013, whether such screening would also be useful in Luxembourg and why only figures for melanoma (black skin cancer) are collected.

Question

Dat statistescht Bundesamt huet rezent matgedeelt, datt an Däitschland d’Zuel vun den Hautkriibserkrankungen tëscht 2002 an 2022 staark zougeholl hätt, an zwar ëm 75%. D’Fäll vun hellem Hautkriibs hätten sech méi wéi verduebelt. De schwaarzen Hautkriibs (Melanom) wier ëm 14% gestigen.

D’Zuel vun den Doudesfäll wéinst Hautkriibs ass an deem Zäitraum ëm 65% geklommen. D’Zuel vun den Doudesfäll wéinst Kriibs ass an deem selwechten Intervall just ëm 10% erop gaangen. Dës Augmentatioun vun den Zuele léisst sech ënnert anerem dorobber zeréck féieren, datt an Däitschland zanter 2008 all Versécherten ab 35 Joer all zwee Joer un engem Depistage fir Hautkriibs kann deelhuelen.

An deem Kader wollte mir der Madamm Gesondheetsministesch follgend Froe stellen:

  • Wéi vill Fäll vun Hautkriibs goufen zanter 2013 am Registre National du Cancer (RNC) erfaasst?
  • Madamm Ministesch, wier et net sënnvoll och hei zu Lëtzebuerg een nationalen Depistage fir Hautkriibs anzeféieren ? Falls net, aus wéi enge Grënn ?

Am RNC gi just d’Melanomen, also d’Fäll vu schwaarzem Hautkriibs, gezielt.

  • Kann d’Madamm Ministesch präziséieren firwat net och d’Fäll vu wäissem Hautkriibs am RNC gesammelt ginn? Wier et eng Iwwerleeung wäert an Zukunft och dës Zort Hautkriibs am RNC ze erfaassen? “

Strengthening the rights of pregnant self-employed workers

Pregnant employees can apply for dispensation from work before their maternity leave, for example if they are unable to work for health reasons. The self-employed do not have this option, which can have a negative impact on the recalculation of their maternity benefits.
DP MPs Carole Hartmann and Mandy Minella have asked the relevant ministers whether paid dispensation from work or an equivalent mechanism will be introduced for pregnant self-employed workers.
