Skin Cancer Screenings
In general, we recommend that everyone receives a routine skin cancer screening annually. It is especially important for some people, who may be considered at a higher risk, to receive their screening each year or more frequently.
Skin Cancer (Melanoma) is the most commonly diagnosed cancer. Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) are the two major forms of “non-melanoma” skin cancer. Our Health Library reviews skin cancer types and skin cancer treatment options, including medications (Aldara, 5-FU), excision and Mohs surgery. Dermatologists recommend regular use of sunscreens and sun avoidance measures to reduce risk of developing skin cancer.
