Skin cancer prevention begins in childhood and your risk is often based on the ultraviolet (UV) radiation exposure you had in your lifetime. Although skin cancer is most commonly found in individuals with fair skin, individuals with medium to dark skin are still at risk. Skin cancers for individuals with medium to dark skin are often not detected as early because of the misconception that they are not at risk.
Our team of experts carefully monitors potential skin cancers by performing a skin exam. We prioritize early detection and offer a wide variety of skin cancer treatments.
