When should I seek the help of a dermatologist?
Dermatologists are not only around when patients have problems with their skin. Patients are welcome to visit a dermatological professional when they want to develop a skin care routine appropriate for their skin type or if they are struggling with a certain condition that they are unable to control and manage on their own with over-the-counter products. Additionally, patients should be proactive regarding their skin’s health by visiting a dermatologist once a year for a skin cancer screening. This is a time when the dermatologist can evaluate a patient from head to toe to look for any growths or changes to the skin that could be indicative of skin cancer. The earlier skin cancer is found and diagnosed, the better chance patients have of staying healthy after treatment. Patients should also make an appointment with their dermatologist for a skin cancer check if they themselves notice changes to moles and growths that occur between annual checkups. Our professionals can take a biopsy of the area of concern to have it checked for cancerous cells, then speak to the patients about possible treatment options if the area is indeed cancerous. Patients may also choose to speak to a provider about the advantages of radiation or chemotherapy for certain types of skin cancers.
