At American Skin Institute, we offer comprehensive full-body skin checks to help you reduce your risk of skin cancer and catch it early. During these thorough examinations, our experienced dermatologists carefully assess your skin from head to toe, looking for any unusual moles, growths, lesions, or other skin abnormalities. These detailed evaluations are essential for identifying potential skin issues that may require further attention.

Full-body skin checks are a crucial part of skin cancer prevention and early detection. If any concerning skin issues are identified, the dermatologist can recommend further evaluation, biopsies, or treatment, ensuring that potential skin problems are addressed promptly. These regular screenings play a pivotal role in maintaining skin health and reducing the risk of skin cancer by catching issues before they develop into more serious conditions.

Skin cancer, often caused by prolonged UV exposure, can take years to develop, making preventive measures and early detection vital. To protect yourself, it’s essential to limit sun exposure, wear broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30, and avoid indoor tanning. These practices, along with regular professional skin checks, can significantly lower your risk of developing skin cancer and other UV-related skin issues.

Moles or spots that are asymmetrical, more than one color or changes in size/shape/color, should be examined by your provider as soon as possible. Also, if you notice a sore that doesn’t heal for over a month and is not showing signs of improving, this may be another indication that it is time to get it examined by a professional.
