By checking your own skin regularly, you may recognize changes that lead to the early detection of skin cancer. Remember, not only is skin cancer the most common form of cancer in the United States, it’s also the most curable when detected and treated early.Things to look for include a spot or sore that continues to itch, hurt, crust or bleed, an open sore that doesn’t heal, as well as moles that change or suddenly appear.
We’re pleased to provide the Body Mole Map to assist you. In addition to checking your own skin regularly, we recommend that our patients undergo an annual full body examination with one of our board-certified dermatologists in Rock Hll.
Should you develop a suspicious growth or patch of skin or notice a new or changed mole, please call to request an appointment with one of our dermatologists immediately.
