Spot Skin Cancer

Skin checks by your dermatologist/ SPOT skin cancer

The American Academy of Dermatology’s SPOT skin cancer campaign is that simple: “See Spot. See Spot Change. See a Dermatologist.”

It is that easy, when it comes to checking your skin for possible skin cancer. Look over your body once a month, or ask your partner to help. If you notice a new or changing mole, then please contact your dermatologist for an evaluation.

Early detection of skin cancer is easily treatable, so please do not delay if you spot something different or suspicious on your body. Again, that means if you notice a new, a changing, or a suspicious spot on your body, or if you have one that is itching and/or bleeding, please see your dermatologist for a determination. It might be nothing, or it might be a spot that needs attention.

Protect your skin from the sun:

Remember to contact your neighborhood Northstar dermatologist if there is a change to your skin. Also, schedule an annual skin checkup with Northstar Dermatology.
