When is the right time to undergo a skin cancer screening? Most of us know that more sun exposure means higher risk for skin
cancer right? Well there are also other, more specific factors that can contribute to skin cancer. You’re more at risk than the average
person if you have any of the following:
• Fair skin (rarely tans but burns easily with sun exposure)
• History of painful sunburns as a child or teenager
• Family history of skin cancer
• Lots of moles and growths on body
If this sounds like you, then I highly recommend seeing a Dermatologist for an annual skin exam. If you have zero to few risk
factors, you can wait a little longer before making an appointment. However, early screening is always the safest and recommended
option. If you are prone to sunburns and/or have a family history of skin cancer, then the latest I would recommend seeing a
Dermatologist is at age 30.
The risk of skin cancer decreases if you’re on the other end of the spectrum:
• Olive toned skin (rarely burns but tans easily with sun exposure)
• Avoids extended sun exposure now and as a child and teenager
• No family history of skin cancer
• Little to no moles or growths on body
I would like to point out that, although rare, I have diagnosed patients with skin cancer who were non-Caucasian! Often skin cancer
is not taken seriously but please remember that it can be deadly.If you do become diagnosed with skin cancer, it can be treatable if
caught early. The most important rule when it comes to skin cancer prevention is to always, ALWAYS, ALWAYS have a suspicious
mole or growth evaluated by a Dermatologist.
And remember your ABCDE’s when conducting a self-evaluation:
A - asymmetry (put an imaginary line in the middle of the mole or spot, the two sides should match, if not it is asymmetric)
B - border (should be smooth)
C - color (should be uniform and even)
D - diameter (should be smaller than a pencil eraser)
E - evolution (watch out for any symptoms like itching, burning, or especially bleeding)
If you find any of these signs when inspecting your moles and growths, see your Dermatologist right away. Having any of these
signs does not automatically mean you have skin cancer but it does mean that you must be evaluated to see if a skin biopsy is
I hope this helps to serve as a reminder to begin getting annual skin exams and regularly examine your moles and skin growths. It
could save your life.
