Screening and treatment options
Our skin cancer screenings are generally full-body visual examinations that last 10 to 15 minutes. We take you to a private room and perform the non-invasive examination. A full-body scan helps ensure that your entire body is free of cancer. If you prefer, we do provide screenings for only exposed areas of skin. However, remember that such a screening cannot confirm that you are completely free of skin cancer.
Be sure to receive a screening especially if you have the following factors, as they put you at increased risk of skin cancer:
- You have previously had melanoma
- You have a history of multiple sunburns
- You have a history of excessive sun exposure
- You have a family history of melanoma
