Skin Cancer Screening Delaware

More than 500,000 new cases of skin cancer are reported each year making it the the most common form of cancer in the United States. 80% of skin cancer is found on the face, head, or neck. While anyone can get skin cancer, skin cancer most commonly occurs in people with fair skin, people who naturally have a lot of moles or moles of unusual shape or size, people with a family history of skin cancer, people who spend a lot of time outdoors, and people who live around the equator where sun exposure is more intense. Learn more about Skin Cancer Screening and see photo examples of what different kinds of Skin Cancer look like on our Skin Cancer page.

There are different types of skin cancer ranging from the least dangerous and most common type of skin cancer known as basal cell carcinoma to squamous cell carcinoma which can be life threatening if not treated to malignant melanoma, the most rare, but also most deadly as it spreads quickly if not discovered early enough. While sometimes a mole is just a mole, sometimes it can be something much more dangerous, so it is important to self-check for any changes to shape, size, texture or color or any new moles that form. It is important to see a doctor if you notice any of the above changes to have them checked out. If you have an abnormal mole or growth a plastic surgeon can also help, not only in diagnosing and treating the issue, but in removing it in a way that leaves the least scaring possible. If you are interested in discussing your skin cancer concerns with Dr. Balakhani, contact our office to schedule your Skin Cancer Screening appointment today.
