Total-Body Skin Cancer Exams Save Lives!

1,000,000 skin cancers went undetected in 2020. What's your skin hiding?

The negative impacts of COVID-19 have been far reaching. As tens of millions of people maintained their social distance and worked from home, many also effectively took a break from visiting trusted health professionals for their routine cancer screenings including their annual Total-Body Skin Cancer Exams.

As a consequence, some skin cancers will not be detected until they have progressed to a more advanced stage. What this means is your skin may be hiding a deadly secret.

Two important new studies shine a light on this. The first, published in January by the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology and led by an elite team that included Advanced Dermatology skin cancer experts and researchers, has shown that more than a million skin cancers went undiagnosed or untreated last year.

And a second study, also published earlier this year in the Journal of the American Society of Clinical Oncology showed that Total-Body Skin Cancer exams are highly effective in finding skin cancers. In fact, when performed by dermatology professionals, Total-Body Skin Cancer Exams are actually 23.5 times more likely to find skin cancer than Pap Smears are to find cervical cancer!

Which gives you about a million reasons to take control of your health, again, and schedule your exam.

“Advanced Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery had (skin cancer exams) on Melanoma Monday. I went in to check the moles on my face and back. The staff at the front desk, Regina, was very professional and nice and I felt welcome. The medical staff was very caring and professional. The medical assistant, Caritta, took me back to my room and she made me feel comfortable about my visit as if she knew me. Dr. Robinson was great! I felt really good about my visit and I want to come back for more services. Thank you."

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 in early detection as well 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
