Yearly Skin Exam
During the exam, a dermatologist examines the entire body and checks for an atypical mole that indicates skin cancer. If there is skin cancer present, you may need Mohs surgery. Luckily, among the very few clinics in Florida that provide Mohs surgery, Care Dermatology is one of them. Mohs surgery is an effective technique to treat common skin cancers, including squamous cell carcinoma and basal cell carcinoma. The Mohs procedure is a combination of dermatology and pathology and requires a single session to perform a skin biopsy.
The Additional Benefits
Yearly skin exams not only work for skin cancer diagnosis but are effective at identifying many other issues including:
Self-diagnosis and self-medication are never recommended because it’s easy for a non-specialist to confuse between different skin issues. Only a dermatologist can correctly determine the underlying disease and help you get on the road to a successful treatment.
