Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States with approximately 20% of Americans developing it at some point in their life. Skin cancer screenings in St Louis are an easy way to identify skin cancer and receive treatment at its earliest stages.
Who Should Get Screened?
Contrary to popular belief, individuals of all skin colors and tones can develop skin cancer. There are several skin characteristics that can cause an individual to be more susceptible to skin cancer. We recommend our skin cancer screenings to anyone over the age of 65 and those who are fair skinned. It is also recommended for individuals with over 50 moles on their body or with atypical moles; this irregular growth of moles can cause the individual to be at a greater risk of melanoma, the most dangerous type of skin cancer.
Other Skin Cancer Types
Melanoma is not the only type of skin cancer that our screenings can detect. Basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma are just as important to detect. Basal cell carcinoma often appears as a brown scaly patch of skin tissue that is frequently exposed to the sun and is the most common form of skin cancer. Squamous cell carcinoma is often found on areas of the body exposed to UV rays and can even spread to underlying tissue and bones. Our skin cancer screenings can help detect of these two skin cancer types along with melanoma.
