Skin Cancer Screenings and Prevention

The American Cancer Society estimates that approximately 3.5 million new cases of skin cancer are diagnosed each year, making it the most common type of cancer. The good news is that it is possible to find this type of cancer early. Be aware of new growths, spots or bumps on your skin. If you see anything that changes in size, shape or color, see a medical professional.

You should also discuss regular skin cancer screenings with your doctor if you are at an increased risk. To check for skin cancer, dermatologists perform a full skin examination from head to toe looking for irregularities. If necessary, a biopsy may be performed to determine if a skin irregularity is cancerous. Learn more about skin cancer, risk factors and treatments offered by visiting
