GlamDerm - Gramercy Laser and Medical Dermatology

Skin Cancer Screening, Detection, and Treatment

The most important part of our job, as dermatologists, is early detection of skin cancer. We encourage our patients to perform self-examinations frequently, bring suspicious growths to our attention and come in for a full body skin examination annually. In select cases, where patients have a number of melanocytic nevi or brown moles and/or a familial history of malignant melanoma, we may recommend total body examinations twice a year.
