Can You Find the One?

Our dermatologists are experts at it.

Most people can't tell for certain if that mole or bump or lesion on their skin is a harmless mole or skin cancer. The fact is, One in five people (an estimated 9,500 per day) in the U.S. of all skin colors, will develop skin cancer. That means that "One" could be you or someone you love. Today, more than one million Americans are living with melanoma (skin cancer's most deadly form), and while the survival rate for melanoma is up to 99% when detected and treated early, that number drops to an estimated 15% in more advanced stages.

It is critical to “spot” melanomas (and all skin cancers) as early as possible and to treat them effectively with the most advanced treatment options available.

Our Dermatologists have the expertise to Find the One (or more) lesion that is cancerous from those that are not.

Early detection and prevention saves lives.

Don't wait, schedule your annual Total-Body Skin Cancer Exam today.

Early detection and 
prevention saves lives

Genetics, age, lifestyle and environmental exposure can all play a role in the development of skin cancer. If you’ve noticed spots that are new or changing,  scaly, flaky patches, or other changes to your skin that concern you (see the ABCDEs of Melanoma below), they could be early signs of skin cancer – and the earlier you get checked out – the better.

The ABCDEs of Melanoma

Advanced Dermatology’s dermatologists and other providers have special expertise in recognizing warning signs of melanoma. However, you can play an important role by noting any changes in the way your skin looks, particularly changes to a mole or moles. When performing self-exams, keep the following in mind:

  • is for Asymmetry – One half of the mole does not match the other half.
  • is for Border irregularity – The edges are ragged, notched or blurred.
  • is for Color – The color varies from one area to another. It could be brown or black, or might have patches of pink, red, white or blue.
  • is for Diameter – Melanomas are usually greater than 6 millimeters (the size of a pencil eraser) although they could be smaller.
  • is for Evolving – A mole or skin lesion that looks different from the rest or is changing in size, shape or color.

If you see any of these signs, immediately schedule an appointment.
