It is estimated that 40-50% of people with fair skin who live to be 65 will develop at least one skin cancer. The incidence of skin cancer is on the rise, and learning to spot early warning signs is extremely important. Skin cancer can be cured, and when it is found and treated early the success rate of treatment exponentially increases. At Medical Dermatology Specialists in Atlanta, Georgia Dr. Jamie Weisman is a nationally recognized dermatologist that provides a new level of care to patients with any type of skin condition or disease. We offer a thorough skin cancer screening of moles, and if any of your moles show any signs of cancer we will provide a personalized, aggressive skin cancer treatment.
Small, scaly patches on the head, neck, or hands can be an early warning sign of skin cancer. While many of these patches may end up being nothing more than a result of too much sun, dermatologists around the United States agree that having them evaluated by a trusted dermatologist is essential to prevent the development of squamous cell skin cancer. While many people have moles on their bodies, they are often nothing to worry about. However, moles that change shape, color, size, or texture should be looked at immediately. Dr. Weisman has a great deal of experience with cancerous moles, and has seen many abnormal moles develop into melanoma over time. Taking the time to look at your moles and become familiar with them is a simple step that can save your life. Most moles on a person look similar to one another. Any mole that looks different from others should be evaluated for a professional opinion.
