Complete Skin Cancer Screening Examinations
Skin cancer is very common and its prevalence is on the rise. Much of our risk for skin cancer is from regular or intermittent sun exposure earlier in life and throughout life. Different kinds of skin cancer may behave very differently with varying degrees of potential threat to one’s life.
