Skin Cancer Screenings in Adrian, MI
What is a Skin Cancer Screening?
According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, one in five Americans will develop skin cancer. The high incidence of skin cancer makes routine screenings crucial, especially if you have a family or personal history of skin cancer. Early detection is key to giving you more treatment options and better outcomes. Along with many innovative skin cancer procedures, our medical care team offers comprehensive skin cancer exams along with biopsies of abnormal growths. To schedule a skin cancer exam, contact Desjarlais Dermatology & Aesthetic Center in Adrian, MI.
How Do We Check for Skin Cancer?
During your skin check, our team will check your entire body for birthmarks, moles, and any other abnormal areas. We can produce a map of spots to mark regions of concern and also to easily identify new spots at future appointments. We will also show you how to perform a self-exam in between your visits.
Sometimes, our team may take a biopsy of a suspicious spot. We will numb the region and then shave a small sample. The sample will be mailed to a pathology lab for evaluation. After we receive the pathology report, you will be contacted to hear the results.
Early Detection is the Key
Understanding your risk factors and early detection are two important keys to the effective treatment of skin cancer. If you're due to get a regular skin exam, then contact our team at Desjarlais Dermatology & Aesthetic Center. Whether you are already seeing our medical care team for other treatments, are at elevated risk for developing skin cancer, or have worries about an abnormal growth on your skin, schedule a skin cancer exam at our Adrian, MI practice.
