The thought of skin cancer checks can often be scary, but they’re also a necessary part of life these days. Skin cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer. The good news is, if it’s caught early-on, it can also be the easiest to treat.
May is Melanoma Awareness Month which brings attention to the deadliest form of cancer. As dermatologists, we feel it’s extremely important to bring attention to this deadly disease throughout the year and recommend regular screenings for each of our patients. If you have fair skin or have spent a good deal of time in the sun, you’re encouraged to visit us more often.
