The Importance of an Annual Skin Exam

Developing a routine of monthly self-exams is very important. Aside from self-checks, though, it’s important to have annual skin exams, by a dermatologist as a board-certified dermatologist can often detect things you might miss. During these exams, you should point out any skin abnormalities, such as new, changing, or strange looking symptomatic moles or skin lesions.

Of particular concern is melanoma, which tends to run in families. Annual skin exams can help monitor and detect worrisome changes as early as possible on moles and other potential warning signs over time to ensure they don’t become a cause for concern.
