Explanation:
Definitely Tumordicke here, as per the Breslow staging system, measured vertically down into the skin. CL, which comes next, is the equivalent using the (older) "Clark level". The lesion's small depth of 0.1 mm dovetails with the fact that it's a primary tumour (pT1a), with no lymph node involvement (NO) and no metastes (MO).
Couldn't really be T-durchmesser here - so tiny you wouldn't even see it...

So "thickness", of course - sorry, forgot to say that!
