Skin Cancer Screening San Francisco
Yearly skin cancer screening (or more often depending on personal history and risk factors) coupled with self-skin examinations at home are the best way to detect early signs of skin cancer.
The three most common types of cancer include basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and malignant melanoma. When a melanoma is detected at a very early stage, it is usually curable. Some melanomas are in hidden spots covered in everyday life but become visible on full body skin exams.
