Each year, there are more than 3 million cases of skin cancer in the United States alone. The rate of skin cancer has increased so quickly, that more than half of all new cancers found every year are skin cancers. While this may be a shocking and even scary statistic, there are many things you can do to prevent and detect skin cancer with regular checkups at your dermatologist.  Here are just a few reasons to schedule your Fall skin cancer check at Skin Cancer Specialists, PC & Aesthetic Center!

Reasons to schedule a skin cancer check
  1. Prevention: During a skin care check, you will have the opportunity to learn about proper prevention strategies to reduce your chances of getting skin cancer. Some of these include:
  1. Early Detection: Identifying problems areas is the most important part of detecting skin cancer early on! Basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma are two types of cancers that can be cured with early detection and treatment.
  2. Better Treatment: When cancers or atypical cells are found early, there is a much higher rate of curability. While melanoma is a much more serious type of skin cancer due to its aggressive growth, this type of cancer can also be cured if found early.
  3. Hidden Areas: There are a lot of spots on your body that can be hard for you to check on your own, including your scalp, behind your ears, and your back, to name a few. By scheduling a skin care check, you can rest assured that all parts of your skin are looked at, and any problem areas are made note of.

Quick – what’s the one thing you can do right now that will improve your odds of living a long and healthy life?

Forget drinking a kale smoothie or logging hours on the treadmill.  One of the best ways to make sure you enjoy a long life is to check yourself for signs of skin cancer.

Unfortunately, skin cancer is on the rise, with deadly melanoma being one of the most diagnosed cancers in younger people (particularly women) under the age of 30.  Given all we know about sunscreen and keeping safe under the summer sun, it’s more important than ever to educate yourself on the signs of skin cancer.

Fortunately, it’s incredibly easy to perform your own skin cancer check – all you need is a hand mirror, a bathroom mirror, and a few minutes of your time!

It’s important to do this skin cancer check at least every six months, especially if you spend a lot of time outdoors.  At this frequency, you can stay vigilant for signs of skin cancer.

If you spot any dark or oddly colored moles, pink lesions, or bumps that look like pimples, you should schedule a consultation with a dermatologist or skin cancer specialist right away.
