Full body Exams
Full Body Examinations
Full body skin exams are an important part of skin cancer detection and prevention. Those with risk factors for skin cancer (fair skin, heavy sun exposure, family history of cancers, multiple moles), should have full body skin exams at least yearly. Those that have had skin cancer may require checks every 3-6 months.
Melanoma, the deadliest skin cancer, has an excellent prognosis when detected and treated early. Furthermore, approximately one-half of melanomas develop from a pre-existing spot, so skin checks are intended not only to detect new spots but also to monitor current ones for a change.
