What is a skin cancer screening?
In a skin cancer screening, a medical professional visually inspects your skin. Our staff does not conduct any blood work for this procedure.
What areas of my body will you screen?
To give you the best assurance that you do not have skin cancer, we conduct a full body screening.
How long does the skin cancer screening last?
Typically, the screening exam lasts about twenty minutes.
Why is it important to get a skin cancer screening?
In humans, skin cancer is the most common form of cancer. Each year more than one million Americans receive a skin cancer diagnosis. One in five Americans will develop skin cancer at some point in their lives. Medical professionals can cure the most common forms of skin cancer, if they detect and treat it early. A skin cancer screening by a medical professional can also detect pre-cancer growths.
Is the skin cancer screening free of charge?
Yes, we conduct this screening fee of charge. If our screening identifies areas that need treatment, and you agree to treatment, we will charge for that treatment.
We conduct the screening in our office and you must make an appointment for your screening*. To make your appointment call us at 703-766-2220.
