Skin cancer incidence

The Skin Cancer Foundation put out a statement that the incidence of skin cancers is higher than that of breast, lung, colon and prostate combined. This does not include just melanoma, but also non-melanoma skin cancers including basal cell cancer and squamous cell cancer. Preventative exams are key! Not only should you have a dermatologist look at you, but get to know what your skin looks like. This can be tough in certain places, so have a loved one help, and/or use two mirrors. Things can change fast. I just had a patient who had a full exam in August, and now has multiple suspicious moles that just popped up in the past 6 months.
