Prompt detection is critical for positive outcomes in skin cancer cases. A standard screening will allow the doctor to identify any moles or lesions that look unusual. During the examination, the “ABCDEs” of each mole is investigated for possible signs of skin cancer. For more information on this process, please visit the following link.
Patients should conduct periodic self-examination to take notice of moles or marks which do not heal, bleed spontaneously or change in color or size. Any concerns should be brought to the attention of your dermatologist. Contact Dr. Goldberg at Urban Dermatology for a skin cancer screen and consultation below.
