Skin Cancer Screening

Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer diagnosed in the United States. In fact, it is estimated that one in five Americans will develop skin cancer during their lifetime.

Fortunately, if caught and treated early, skin cancer is completely curable, which is why it is very important to have your skin checked regularly by a dermatologist. Even if you have never had skin cancer in the past, having your skin checked annually is the best way to ensure that any problems are caught and treated as early as possible.

USF Health dermatologists can answer any questions you may have and provide valuable insight on what to look for when performing self-skin examinations at home.

By connecting with our dermatology experts, you can rest assured that, if you develop anything suspicious, it is diagnosed and treated as early as possible, maximizing opportunities to cure and keep your skin as healthy as possible.
