Skin cancer is a very serious condition that affects millions of Americans each and every year. It can develop in men and women of all ages, and is the most common form of cancer in the United States. Studies show that one in five Americans will develop skin cancer during their lifetime.
At Dermatology Consultants, our skilled dermatologists will examine your skin for suspicious moles or lesions, and take samples, if necessary, to be checked by a pathologist. If we detect the three forms of skin cancer – basal cell, squamous cell or melanoma – the dangerous cells can be removed.
Because it is important to catch skin cancer at an early stage, we encourage you to check your body regularly for changes to your skin, such as the growth of a dark mole.
If you notice a mole or mark on your skin that was not there before, or has changed over time, it’s crucial that you schedule an appointment with Dermatology Consultants as soon as possible. Call us to make your appointment today.
