This Valentine’s Day, we want to encourage you to screen the one you love for skin cancer. It is now estimated that there are over 5 million cases of skin cancer a year, making it the most common form of cancer. Fortunately, most skin cancers are curable if detected early.
So show your Valentine how much you care, by helping him or her check for skin cancer. This should be in addition to your annual skin exam from a dermatologist.
Here are instructions on how to perform a skin check.
If you notice anything changing, growing, bleeding, or unusual, schedule an appointment.
