Early Detection Is Key To Effectively Treating Skin Cancers

abcs of skin cancer screening

As we head into 2022, we want to start the year with an important reminder – early detection is key to effectively treating skin cancers. Follow the ABCDEs for self examination and remember to book your annual body exam with your dermatologist. Our providers are trained in identifying skin cancers at their earliest stages – the earlier a dangerous spot is identified, the easer it is to treat. Many skin cancers can be treated in the office. If you notice a spot that meet any of the ABCDE criteria do not hesitate to give us a call.

The ABCDEs of Detecting Melanoma:

  • Asymmetry
  • Border
  • Color
  • Diameter
  • Evolving

For more information on how this can help your skin, schedule an appointment on our website or give our office a call at 203-538-5682.
