Skin Cancer Detection

While the Skin Cancer Foundation recommends monthly self-examinations, patients are encouraged to get annual skin cancer detection screenings by a professional dermatologist. During both types of screenings, patients should check or be checked for new or changing legions, dark spots and irregularities. Skin cancer detection checks take less than 10 minutes and can greatly decrease the impact of the 2 million+ cases annually.

May of each year is “National Skin Cancer Awareness Month.” The Dermatology Clinic participates in these annual skin cancer screenings at various locations throughout Arkansas.
