The American Academy of Dermatology’s 2018 SPOT Skin Cancer™ campaign is recognizing "Skin Cancer Heroes" — patients and survivors, the friends and loved ones who have helped and supported them, and the board-certified dermatologists who have detected and treated their skin cancer. The AAD encourages everyone to be their own "Skin Cancer Hero" by taking steps to prevent skin cancer and detect it early, when it’s most treatable. This is especially important for men over 50 as they have an increased risk of developing melanoma compared to the general population.

If you notice any suspicious spots on your skin or your partner’s skin, or anything that is changing, itching or bleeding, call today to schedule an appointment.
