The Importance of Skin Cancer Screenings
posted: Apr. 13, 2023.
Most people have freckles or moles their entire lives and don’t think much of them. You may not realize that skin cancer often shows up through changes in moles. It’s important that you’re checking your moles on your own and also visiting our dermatologist for a yearly skin cancer screening.
Dr. John Randall, our board-certified dermatologist and the provider team at Randall Dermatology & Medspa in West Lafayette, Kokomo, Frankfort, Rensselaer, Terre Haute, Westfield, Monticello, Winamac, Williamsport, and Zionsville, IN, can explain why you need to get regular skin cancer screenings.
Are Skin Cancer Screenings Necessary?
You may not think that you’re in direct danger of dealing with skin cancer, but it’s important that you’re able to spot the signs before it spreads and becomes a more severe issue. Skin cancer screenings from one of our dermatology providers can help you catch signs at an early stage, making skin cancer easier to treat.
Skin cancer screenings are important for everyone, regardless of your risk. You should be looking for any changes in moles, any new moles that have appeared, or any bleeding or pain in a mole. Skin cancer is one of the most common types of cancer and it’s extremely important that you’re taking it seriously by visiting our dermatologist for your yearly exam. They will check each mole on your body for any suspicious signs and catch it as early as possible.
