According to the American Cancer Society, skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. Approximately one million Americans develop skin cancer each year. With proper protection, skin cancer may be prevented.
As with many diseases, early detection is the key to successfully beating skin cancer. If cancer is detected, it may be successfully treated if it is discovered and treatment is administered during the early stages.
By performing self-examinations regularly in addition to regular visits to the Center, it is possible to prevent cancer and to avoid potentially invasive surgeries and/or subsequent discomfort and other long-term health problems.
