The Importance of a Skin Exam

In the United States alone, more than one million people are diagnosed with skin cancer each year. In a culture where tan is beautiful, and a beach is the ultimate relaxing getaway, it’s especially important to protect ourselves from harmful UV rays. At Colorado Skin Care, we provide skin exams for our patients so we can quickly and accurately identify any irregularities as soon as they come up. We are all told that annual dentist and doctor appointments are essential to our health, but you should also have your skin checked regularly as well.

A regular skin screening is one of the best ways to prevent the threat of disease. Our skin specialists will help you identify any new and irregular moles, spots, and more. Dermatologists are trained to recognize signs of all three primary forms of skin cancer: melanoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and basal cell carcinoma. Even if you slather yourself with sunscreen every day, getting your skin checked could end up saving your life.

When skin cancer is caught early enough, there is a 98% chance that it can be cured. Visit our Englewood dermatology center today to schedule your skin exam with one of our specialists. Give us a call at (303) 740-4883 or fill out the email form on our contact page.
