Skin cancer is the most common of all cancers. It accounts for nearly half of all cancers in the United States. More than 1 million cases of skin cancer are found in this country each year, accounting for more than 10,000 annual deaths.
Skin cancer is highly curable in most cases when detected and treated early. Monthly self exams and an annual professional exam are recommended.
Mid-Atlantic Skin’s skin screening exams include the use of a non-invasive and painless state-of-the-art dermatoscope to help with examining the skin.
While studies have proven that the additional use of a dermatoscope aides in the diagnosis of skin cancers, less than half of dermatology offices use this important tool.
Free skin checks apply to new patients only
