An Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure

It’s hard to deny the beautiful glow the sun gives our skin but, as we all know, too much of a good thing can be unhealthy. That’s why skin cancer afflicts more than 2 million Americans every year. The good news is that with early detection and treatment most cases are curable.

Always be on the lookout for changes in your freckles or moles. If you have a mole that meets any of these
A-B-C-D-E” descriptions, please contact our office for an appointment.

Asymmetry: One half of the mole does not match the other half

Border: The border or edges of a mole are ragged, blurred, or irregular

Color: The mole has different colors or it has shades of tan, brown, black, blue, white, or red

Diameter: The diameter of the mole is larger than the eraser of a pencil

Evolving: The mole appears different from others and/or is changing in size, color, or shape.

Annual skin care screenings are recommended. Skin cancer screenings save lives.
