Complete Skin Exams: We want to see you naked.

  • Your skin is the largest organ of your body. So, getting a routine skin check every year is just as important as an annual exam with our Primary Care Physician.
  • During your exam, we will take your personal and family history then look you over head to toe, from the soles of your feet all the way up to your scalp. We do remove suspicious lesions during this time and send for pathology for testing.

 

Types of Skin Cancers:

  • Basal Cell Carcinoma: the most common type of skin cancer. It forms in the deepest level of your skins outermost layer. Usually basal cell carcinomas stem from too much sun exposure, like if you frequently get bad sunburns. In severe cases, basal cell can spread to other parts of your body.
  • Squamous Cell Carcinoma: generally, forms on parts of your skin that get the most sun exposure, like your face and neck. This type of skin cancer spreads quicker than basal cell carcinoma, so early detection and treatment are essential.
  • Melanoma: is the most serious form of skin cancer because of its ability to spread to other organs more rapidly if not treated at an early stage. Melanomas can be caused by ultraviolet (UV) radiation from sunlight or tanning beds. Melanomas can be treated successfully if it is detected early.
