Did you know skin cancer is 100% curable if caught early? It is ALL about early detection! While you can keep an eye on your skin to monitor changes in your moles, it is always good to see a dermatologist to give you a total body skin exam. That way, the physician can point out certain moles for you to keep an eye on and even photograph them to recheck at your next annual skin check. Doctor’s office can be expensive, but some insurance plans cover “preventive screenings”, so check with your physician to see if this is an option for you!
Don’t have insurance? Many physicians are offering free skin cancer screenings as a public service during the month of May!! Click here to find a physician in your area. Take advantage of these resources to ensure you are keeping ahead of any sun damage!
