Skin cancer screenings are vital when it comes to keeping you healthy, risk-free, and clear of skin cancer. Certified Dermatology offers skin cancer screenings that’ll help you enjoy sustained peace of mind.
When to Consider Skin Cancer Screenings
If you’re over the age of 35, we recommend visiting a Certified Dermatology location at least once per year to have your skin routinely examined. Skin cancer can develop quietly, and is almost always able to be completely excised when it is spotted early on. This makes regular skin cancer screenings an important tool for just about any adult.
We also recommend coming in for a skin cancer screening if you have noticed the presence of one or more atypical moles on your body. While most moles have a consistent set of characteristics, atypical moles can sometimes indicate the presence of skin cancer, in which case it is vital that you have the area checked and potentially treated as soon as possible.
We recommend coming in for a skin cancer screening if you have noticed the following characteristics in your moles:
- Asymmetrical borders that don’t align on either side of the mole
- Irregular or jagged borders or edges
- Multiple shades of color
- Dark shades of brown and black
- Large diameter
- Changing qualities over time
