Risk factors such as any history of sunburn, indoor tanning, outdoor tanning or living in a sunny environment, increase your chances of having skin cancer. Inherited risk factors include a family history of skin cancer, fair complexion, blue or green eyes, red or blonde hair and having many moles. The more risk factors you have the more frequently you should be screened.
Skin cancer screenings include checking of suspicious moles/lesions. An annual full body skin exam is recommended to ensure all areas including the back, scalp and feet are checked. Patients are given a gown during full body skin exams and a medical assistant is present.
Tru-Skin Dermatology is proud to offer FREE SKIN CANCER SCREENINGS for patients without insurance throughout the year at our various locations. Call to schedule your appointment today. See below for dates.
