CANCER SCREENING

1 in 5 Americans will get skin cancer in their lifetime, having routine skin cancer screenings are very important.

The Importance of Routine Skin Cancer Screenings

Sun exposure causes more than 90% of all skin cancers, yet fewer than 33% of adults, adolescents and children routinely use sun protection. Screening is looking for cancer before a person has any symptoms. This can help find cancer at an early stage. When abnormal tissue or cancer is found early, it may be easier to treat. By the time symptoms appear, cancer may have begun to spread. The skin cancer preventative appointments includes a Full Body Mole Mapping, where we use a digital device to scan the full body to keep them on file to watch the growth or to have them removed.
