Skin Cancer Screening Services for Residents of Bradenton, FL
Dermatology Associates is proud to offer skin cancer screening services for residents of Bradenton, Florida, and the surrounding communities. Our screening service involves a simple physical examination that aims to detect cancerous cells before symptoms may be obvious. Skin cancer is a common form of cancer, and as with other forms of cancer, early detection and treatment can significantly improve outcomes.
Many patients from Bradenton, FL, choose to visit Dermatology Associates for a screening when they’ve noticed an abnormal mole that they’d like to have checked out. Even if you haven’t noticed any unusual spots on your skin, you may want to consider a skin cancer screening if you are at a higher risk of developing skin cancer. Some risk factors that may increase an individual’s susceptibility to developing skin cancer include:
- A family history or personal history of skin cancer
- A lighter skin tone or skin that burns easily
- Blond or red hair, and blue or green eyes
- Repeated or excessive exposure to UV rays from the sun or indoor tanning
When you visit Dermatology Associates for a screening or any other skin concern, you can expect the highest quality of care. If we do detect a form of cancer or a pre-cancerous growth during your screening, our board-certified dermatologists will explain what your treatment options are and help determine which option is best for you. Dermatology Associates offers comprehensive skin care services, including treatment for all types of skin cancer.
