Skin Mole Being Inspected By Doctor

Skin cancer screenings are an integral part of successfully treating skin cancer. When skin cancer is discovered in its early stages through early detection, it profoundly affects the treatment’s success rate. For this reason, the American Cancer Society states “they do not have guidelines for the early detection of skin cancer, knowing your skin is important to finding skin cancer early. Be aware of your normal pattern of moles, freckles, and blemishes. Many doctors also recommend regular skin exams. Exams by your doctor and checking your skin frequently can help find many skin cancers early, when they are easier to treat.”

If you have not had a skin cancer screening recently, it’s essential to book your quality skin cancer screening with Dr. Weisman at Medical Dermatology Specialists. Before you come in for your appointment, we have a few tips for you to make your appointment as effective as possible.

Tips For Your Skin Cancer Screening

  • Know your skin. Before you come to your appointment, let us know of any changes you’ve noticed over time. Let us know of any growths or changes that could be a warning sign of cancer.
  • Be prepared to take off your clothes so we can discreetly examine every part of your body. A medical exam gown will be worn for the duration of your appointment to replace your clothes.
  • Show us any areas of your skin that are bleeding or itching.
  • The screening usually takes about 10 minutes unless we see anything unusual that will require further investigation.
  • We will be checking for the “ABCDEs” of moles. (Asymmetry, border irregularity, color, diameter, evolving).

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.
Jeffery D.
Dr. Weisman is a great doctor! She was very informative and personally! Her staff were very welcoming as well I'm glad I found her because she is the only doctor who truly explained what was going with me.
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.
