Dermatology

Dermatologists diagnose and treat conditions and diseases of skin, hair, nail, and mucous membranes including acne, rosacea, and skin infections. They also perform screening and removal of skin cancers and suspicious moles and lesions. Skin biopsies are performed and sent to labs for analysis. Many dermatologists also perform cosmetic procedures including the treatment of wrinkles, sun-damaged skin, dark spots, and leg veins.

The American Cancer Society recommends general skin cancer screenings every three years in patients between the ages of 20 and 40, then yearly after that. Each year, almost 5 million people in the U.S. are treated for skin cancer. While the average age for a new melanoma is 62, many cancers are discovered in much younger people. Screenings are quick, painless, and take place in the physician’s office.
