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."
