Skin Cancer Screenings
A best practice for early skin cancer detection
Skin cancer is the most common cancer, affecting millions of Americans every year. Early detection significantly increases skin cancer survival rates–this is especially true in the case of melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer. With these facts in mind, the need for regular skin cancer screenings cannot be overemphasized. Chicago Skin Clinic uses the latest diagnostic tools for skin cancer screenings in order to provide patients with accurate and timely treatment recommendations.
How it works and what to expect
Our physician doctors will thoroughly assess, map and monitor skin lesions, employing state-of-the-art diagnostic tools. Skin cancer screening technology is an invaluable aid in the evaluation of lesions and the development of a diagnostic plan. Using specialized techniques such as dermoscopy—in which a dermatoscope is used to view subsurface anatomic structures in the skin—increases diagnostic accuracy of melanoma, basal cell skin cancer, skin malignancies, and benign skin lesions. This dermatoscope is a viewing device that allows your doctor to better determine the next appropriate steps. Dermoscopy bridges the clinical with the histologic and allows our practitioners to see structures not visible to the naked eye. It is the current standard of care in evaluating moles.
