Many people are concerned if a mole on their body is a skin cancer. Before visiting your dermatologist, you need to stay aware of growth on your body that may be changing. 


So, the change could be about its size, color or other symptoms such as it feels itchy or painful and if it bleeding or not healing.


In these conditions, it would be wise to visit your dermatologist and get a skin cancer screening.



Q1

Am I at high risk for skin cancer?


You might have a higher risk of getting cancer if:

 You have fair skin

 You have light hair and light eyes

 You burn when you try to get tanned

 You had blistering sun burns in the past

 You have someone in your family who had skin cancer

 You previously did indoor tanning in past




Q2

What are the different types 

of skin cancer?


There are three kinds of skin cancers:


01

Basal Cell Carcinoma


It is one of the most common skin cancer and is very less likely to spread to other parts of your body. It may keep on growing and damage the tissues around it if not treated.



02

Squamous Cell Carcinoma


This type of skin cancer is more aggressive and they can slowly spread to other parts of your body.


03

Melanomas 


This is a serious type of skin cancer that can easily spread to other parts of your body and needs aggressive treatment as it may be fatal.



A-Asymmetry

One half looks different than the other half.

B-Border

It has irregular or uneven edge.

C-Color

It has different colors.

D-Diameter

It is larger than eraser on the end of a pencil.

E-Evolution

Its size, color, shape or characteristics changed over time. 



Q3

What can I expect 

at skin cancer screening?


Our doctors will look from your head to toes closely, which includes your scalp, face, arms, back, chest, stomach, legs and in between toes. They would even check your eyes and inside of mouth.



If you are comfortable, they would like to screen your private areas such as your genital areas and buttocks as well because skin cancer may grow at any area of your body.


Our doctors will look for textural changes that may be suggestive of any pre-cancerous signal or any spots that may not be healing that you didn't notice.



Q4

Is there a test for skin cancer


Yes, after examining skin of your body, if we suspect any kind of skin cancer or pre-cancerous condition, we will do a biopsy that will help us to make a definitive diagnosis.




Q5

How can it be treated?


If this cancer is detected in early stage before spreading, we will perform a small surgery to cut it off.


But it we detect after it has already spread, you would refer you to visit oncologist to discuss the best treatment plan such as immunotherapy, targeted therapy, etc.




Q6

What happens after treatment?


After treatment, you will need to visit your dermatologist around once a 6 months to make sure if there are no new lesions resembling skin cancer coming back.



Q7

Can skin cancer be prevented?


Yes, you can decrease your chances of getting skin cancer by protecting yourself from excess sun exposure. It can be done by following simple methods which are:



 Wear sunscreen with SPF at least 30 and reapply it after two hours if you are outdoors;

 Use long-sleeved shirt, long pants and wide-brimmed hats;

 Avoid sun exposure during middle of the day (9am - 4pm);

 Do not use tanning beds;
