Self Skin Exam Can Save Your Life

January 21st, 2015 | Category: Cosmetic,Dr. Goldenberg,Media,Skin Cancer

 

Skin cancer is a real epidemic. The number of cases keeps climbing. Younger and younger patients are getting skin cancer, likely to tanning bed exposure. And there is a shortage of dermatologists in US to take care of this growing problem.

Which is why it is so important for patients to be pro-active and perform self skin exams monthly. I recommend this to ALL my patients. It’s really very easy and can be made easier if you have someone to help look at your back and back of your legs. Explicit instructions can be found HERE, on the American Academy of Dermatology site.

So even if you are getting your skin check with your dermatologist annually, which everyone should do, perform a self skin exam monthly in the interim. It may just save your life!
