Skin cancer screenings are the most effective way to prevent skin cancer and catch it early. Routinely screening for skin cancer can save your life. A skin cancer screening involves a head-to-toe skin exam. A doctor will make note of all skin markings or spots that need watching or further examination. If you’ve noted any concerning spots on your skin, it is important to discuss them with your doctor.
Skin cancer screenings are important for catching cancer early, when it’s more easily treatable, than when it has advanced into later stages.
