Skin Cancer Diagnosis and Prevention
The incidence of skin cancer is increasing at an alarming rate, and is being diagnosed in younger patients than ever before. We encourage our patients to practice sun safety, avoid use of tanning beds, and to watch for new or changing skin lesions that may develop. Worrisome lesions should be examined by a dermatologist.
