Early detection is critical to treating any skin condition, but especially melanoma or skin cancer. With careful attention to immediate concerns and annual skin checks, your dermatologist at Northside Hospital can help you keep your skin healthy, detecting areas of concern before they become more serious health issues.
Skin conditions that affect your health and wellness can be seen or unseen. Some issues that show on the surface of your skin may be obvious – such as skin damage from too much sun. Factors such as exposure to pollution or lifestyle habits such as smoking or poor nutrition can also cause skin issues that require medical care. But others can be hard to spot – such as on the back or scalp, or due to slow changes over time, as with changes to color and shape of moles. Hidden symptoms can be more dangerous if left untreated. That’s why it’s important to see a dermatologist regularly.
