How often should I see a Dermatologist for cancer screenings??
That is a really great question, because for everyone it is different. Here at our office we like to do a full body exam from head to toe depending on sun exposure daily and if the patient uses Spf on a regular basis. If no lesions are detected then we will schedule once a year. If a patient is working in the sun for a living and not using Spf regularly and if more then 14 lesions are detected then we would recommend an annual screeing of every 4 months. This also depends if a patient is doing their periodic self-examinations in between their scheduled appointments and detects a lesion that looks suspicious..
