Skin cancer screening is one of the best ways you can protect your skin. Greenwich Point Dermatology is where medical dermatology, advanced surgical techniques, and cutting-edge cosmetic dermatology treatments meet to create a lifetime of healthy, beautiful skin. Head dermatologist, Dr. Sarah Dolder, and her expert team are proud to offer skin cancer screening and detection to patients in Greenwich, Stamford, and the neighboring communities in Fairfield County.
What is Skin Cancer Screening and Detection?
One of the reasons skin cancer can be so dangerous is that patients don’t catch it before it gets out of hand. That’s why Dr. Sarah Dolder and her expert team of medical professionals are happy to offer their patients annual skin cancer screening and detection services. These screenings, also commonly referred to as full-body examinations, involve Dr. Dolder checking the skin on your entire body for abnormalities and changes in your skin. If Dr. Dolder does see an irregularity, she can easily treat it or prevent it from getting more severe. We encourage our patients to get skin cancer screenings each year to ensure healthy-looking and -feeling skin.
What are the Benefits of Skin Cancer Screening and Detection?
There are many benefits to getting a skin cancer screening, including:
- Quick and easy annual appointment
- Keeps track of changes in mole color, size, and border
- Detects irregularities in the skin
Dr. Dolder and her team may suggest you consider full-body photography and mole mapping in addition to your full-body examination to get a digitalized photo record of your body’s moles. This allows yourself and your medical team to better keep track of the changes in your moles over the years and determine if they may become pre-cancerous or cancerous in the near future.
What can I Expect During my Skin Cancer Screening and Detection?
Your full-body examination will be performed by Dr. Sarah Dolder and her expert medical team in our comfortable office. Before your skin cancer screening begins, you will be asked to remove all of your clothes and wear a special gown. This allows Dr. Dolder to better examine your skin. Dr. Dolder will then perform your skin cancer screening and detection by carefully looking over your body and taking note of any markings, moles, and skin irregularities you may have. The entire screening process only takes a few minutes, after which time you can put your clothes back on and discuss a possible treatment plan with Dr. Dolder.
How Much Does Skin Cancer Screening and Detection Cost?
The cost of your skin cancer screening and detection at Greenwich Point Dermatology will vary depending on your health insurance plan. To get a better idea of how much your annual full-body check will cost, we encourage you to come in and see our team of Board Certified Dermatologists for a solution. We don’t want to always single out Dr. Dolder as we have other providers here that we need to keep busy!
