If there is one appointment that you can keep every year, it should be your annual skin cancer screening. This simple visit to our office could change your entire life. It’s a way to help you be proactive about any problems with your skin. At the same time, you are taking preventative measures as well. If at all possible, you want to avoid any bouts of skin cancer. However, your annual skin cancer screening will help you to deal with any problems with your skin in an effective way. When you think about ways that you can take care of yourself, put skin cancer screenings at the top of your list.
What Happens During a Skin Cancer Screening?
When you come in for your annual skin cancer screening, our dermatologist or dermatological professional will perform a thorough evaluation of your skin. Your skin is the largest organ that covers your body. You need to be vigilant and look for anything out of the ordinary. By visiting our office for a skin cancer screening, you can have the peace of mind that comes with knowing someone is checking areas that you can’t see on your own. Our medical professional will also be on the lookout for anything that is a matter for concern. You can also point out any abnormalities on your skin. If you see any growths that are not symmetrical, have changed in color, or sores that will not heal, be sure to show our medical professional.
Stay on Top of the Condition of Your Skin
You can wear protective clothing and sunscreen to protect your skin. You also need to pay attention to your skin. If you see anything that you think is not right, you need to call our office right away. It doesn’t matter if it isn’t time for your screening yet. You owe it to yourself to get your skin checked so that you can have peace of mind. If it is nothing, you can breathe a sigh of relief. If there is something, you can deal with it before it progresses. You want to spare yourself scarring or the chance that skin cancer could spread throughout your body. Something as simple as a skin cancer screening can be your best insurance policy.
