Total Body Skin Cancer Exams

This is a comprehensive skin cancer screening designed to detect and prevent the development of skin cancer. This thorough examination of your skin to identify suspicious moles, growths or other areas of concern that may require further investigation.

What is a Total Body Skin Exam?

Total body skin cancer exams are an important part of health maintenance. A full body skin exam, or skin cancer screening, is a visual exam that checks the skin for certain unusual marks which may be signs of skin cancer.

During the appointment, our dermatological team will thoroughly examine your skin from the top of your scalp to the soles of your feet. The purpose of this exam is to allow the doctor to detect any suspicious moles or lesions and diagnose any potential skin cancers early on.

Why should you get Annual screenings?

Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States, with one out of every five Americans developing skin cancer in their lifetime. With early detection, most cases of skin cancer are highly treatable, which is why routine skin cancer screenings are incredibly important.

We recommend that adults should have a full-body skin cancer screening performed by a dermatologist at least once a year. Individuals with a history of skin cancer or a family history of the disease may need to be screened more frequently.

Early detection and prevention is key

The earlier skin cancer is found and treated, the better the chances of survival are. Unfortunately, skin cancer often goes unnoticed, and people may not even realize they have it. During these screenings, we will examine your skin from head to toe, examining any suspicious moles or other skin lesions that may be precancerous or cancerous. If something is unusual, a biopsy will be performed on the same day and pre-cancers are typically treated in the same visit.

The best way to prevent skin cancer is to protect your skin from exposure to UV radiation. Seek shade when outdoors, wear protective clothing, apply sunscreen of at least 30 SPF daily, and avoid tanning beds or lamps. If you see any growth, sores, or lesions that concern you, consult us right away.
