If you’ve never had a skin cancer screening, it’s time to make an appointment with a dermatologist. Skin cancer screenings can save lives by facilitating the early treatment of skin cancers such as melanoma. In addition to annual screening, dermatologists recommend making an appointment if you notice any unusual and persistent changes to your skin. These can include moles or other pigmented areas that change in shape, size, or color, or that itch, bleed, or crust over. Skin cancers typically have an asymmetrical appearance, an irregular border, and a mixture of colors.
