What is a Skin Cancer Screening?
A skin cancer screening is a visual inspection of your skin by our physician or nurse practitioner. No blood work is conducted at a screening. Please watch this video to learn what to expect during a screening.
Why are skin cancer screenings necessary?
Skin cancer will affect 1 in 5 Americans, and more than 3.5 million new cases in 2 million people are diagnosed each year. Basal Cell Carcinoma and Squamous Cell Carcinoms are the most common forms of skin cancer, but melanoma is the most deadly. With early detection and proper treatment, the cure rate for Basal Cell Carcinoma and Squamous Cell Carcinoma is about 95 percent. When melanoma is detected before it spreads, it also has a high cure rate. Regular self-skin exams and a yearly examination by a dermatologist help people find early skin cancers.
