Skin Cancer Screening

Why is skin cancer screening important? Most people are not aware that they have skin cancer. Skin cancers are NOT painful, bleeding, or changing quickly enough for people to notice. The rate of skin cancer is growing every year. 4-5 million skin cancers are diagnosed in the US annually meaning that 1 in 4 Americans will develop skin cancer. It is important to have you skin checked at least once a year by a doctor.
