Skin cancer

Skin cancer is one of the easiest cancers to detect in the earlier stages. Patients are encouraged to visit the dermatologist at least once a year for an annual skin cancer screening. There are many moles and skin tags that may be pre-cancerous, so with a thorough head-to-toe screening, patients can catch these concerns early enough for intervention. In some cases, concerning areas of the skin may be biopsied. The dermatologist takes a sample and sends it out for further evaluation to determine if there are any cancerous cells present. If the sample comes back as positive for skin cancer, patients should consult with their dermatologist about how to proceed.

Benefits of catching skin cancer early

Skin cancer is one of the easiest to recognize, diagnose, and treat. Many patients are at a risk for skin cancer due to excessive sun exposure. Patients who frequent tanning beds are also at a higher risk for developing problems such as cancerous cells. Regular screenings allow for early detection and intervention for a healthier body!
