While it is true that anybody can develop skin cancer, there are common factors that may increase risks in certain individuals. If you are concerned about your overall health, it is important to consider dermatology.

It is important to look after your skin – after all, it is the largest organ in the body. The outer layer of the skin is also visible, making it possible to detect any anomalies that develop. Cancers can take the form of large spots that are brown in color.

You may also have moles that change color, size, texture or begin to bleed. Lesions can also form on the skin with irregularly shaped borders. These lesions are white, blue, red or pink in color. In other cases, lesions can itch and burn.

Risk Factors for Skin Cancer

Individuals with lighter skin are more likely to develop skin cancers. If you burn easily, try to stay out of the Atlanta sun as much as possible. Blue or green eyes is an attractive feature but is also a risk factor for the development of some skin cancers.

Do you have naturally blond or red hair and freckles? Unfortunately, skin cancer risks are higher if you have these features. High exposure to UV light, from the sun or sunbeds, may increase the likelihood of developing a life-threatening skin condition.

Family and personal history of skin cancer may be cause for concern. You should take steps to reduce other risk factors to maintain healthy skin. Older individuals should consult with a specialist dermatologist if any concerning changes occur in the appearance of skin or moles.

Our Patient Reviews

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.

Waquele H.
I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems. If you have any dermatological issues this practice is absolutely the best of the best.
