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:
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.
