Full Body Cancer Screenings

Our full body cancer screening services are designed to provide comprehensive evaluations to detect skin cancer and abnormalities early, when treatment is most effective. Whether you have a history of skin cancer, suspicious moles, or simply want peace of mind, our experienced dermatologists are here to provide thorough screenings tailored to your unique needs.

Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the world, with millions of new cases diagnosed each year. Early detection and treatment are critical for improving outcomes and reducing the risk of complications. Full body cancer screenings allow dermatologists to examine the skin from head to toe, identifying suspicious lesions and abnormalities that may require further evaluation or biopsy.

During a full body cancer screening, your dermatologist will examine your skin from head to toe, including hard-to-reach areas such as the scalp, between toes, and genital area. You may be asked to remove clothing to allow for a thorough examination of the skin.

Your dermatologist will carefully evaluate moles, freckles, birthmarks, and other skin lesions, noting any changes in size, shape, color, or texture. Suspicious lesions may be examined with a dermatoscope, a specialized tool that allows for detailed examination of the skin’s surface.

Full body cancer screenings are recommended for individuals at increased risk of skin cancer, including those with:

  • A personal or family history of skin cancer
  • Fair skin that burns easily
  • Numerous moles or atypical moles
  • History of excessive sun exposure or indoor tanning
  • Weakened immune system due to medical conditions or medications

However, everyone can benefit from regular skin examinations to detect skin cancer and other dermatological conditions early.
