Skin Cancer Screening

Routine Skin Cancer Screenings

Most residents of sunny states like Florida should have there skin checked by a dermatologist once a year. If you have any risk factors for skin cancer (such as family history, pre-cancer spots, or previous skin cancers) then you should be seen twice a year. This is your best chance at prevention and timely intervention.

We also recommend making an immediate appointment with us for a total body scan if you notice the following:

  • sores that don’t heal after one month
  • new or changing lesions (especially moles)

Make sure you show the doctor what you’ve found so they can use magnification, photography (when appropriate), and dermatoscopes to evaluate your moles and look for early signs of skin cancer. Sometimes we’ll also need to do minimally invasive shave or punch biopsies.

Our goal is to find the balance between catching every cancer but not over-biopsying patients and leaving unnecessary scars. Remember, the thoroughness of our doctor’s review is essential to early and effective treatment.

We are known for being always “on time”, too, so if you find something on your skin that’s concerning, call us at 954-987-7512 and you’ll be scheduled promptly and seen on time at your appointment.

Helpful advice throughout the process

If we are treating you for skin cancer:

  • we will use the least invasive, most convenient and safest solution
  • many superficial skin cancers can simply be “scraped” out with a five minute procedure, requiring NO stitches with speedy recover
  • some types can be treated with an FDA-approved cream applied at home
  • some types will require surgery. We do it all in the office, under local anesthesia, and almost everything repaired same day with a plastic surgeon in-house if you need one, so you will not need to go somewhere else for a repair.

Above all else, our #1 goal is for you to “get on with your life”.
