Your skin cancer screening at Northstar Dermatology is a full-body examination focused on preventing and managing skin cancer.
During your skin cancer screening, your dermatologist requests you change into an exam gown. Then, they examine the skin over your entire body, noting the various moles and freckles, as well as abnormal growths and lesions.
After your skin cancer screening, your dermatologist at Northstar Dermatology reviews their findings with you. If abnormal skin lesions were found, they may recommend a biopsy to confirm or rule out skin cancer.
They also talk to you about the preventive measures you can take to protect your skin, including regular use of sunblock, staying out of the sun during peak hours, and keeping your skin covered with clothing, wide-brimmed hats, and sunglasses.
The dermatologists may also suggest you perform at-home skin screenings so you’re familiar with your skin and can easily identify abnormalities. If you find abnormal skin lesions during a self-exam, Northstar Dermatology recommends you contact the office right away for an evaluation.
