Skin Cancer Screening in San Diego
Each year, over 8,500 people will die of skin cancer, according to the CDC. That is a staggering statistic, and what makes it even more saddening is the fact that early detection makes most of these skin cancers curable. Sadly, many people are not aware that the lesion or mole they have is, in fact, cancerous until it is too late. Laser Cliniqúe wants to help with this problem by offering our comprehensive skin cancer screening to our clients.
The skin is the body’s largest organ, and it is constantly bombarded with environmental toxins and UV rays. That is why it is at risk for developing cancer. Because there are so many parts of the skin that people do not look at regularly, dangerous, cancerous growths may go undetected for too long without proactive evolution, and that is where Laser Cliniqúe can help.
Skin Evaluation at Laser Cliniqúe
When you visit our clinic for a skin cancer evaluation, P. Alexander Ataii M.D. will thoroughly examine the entire surface of your skin in a safe, private environment. He will look for any questionable moles or lesions that could indicate a pending problem with skin cancer. If a lesion or mole looks questionable, he may order a biopsy of the tissue to rule out cancer. For less questionable growths, P. Alexander Ataii may simply recommend that you keep an eye on the development of the growth. If lesions are cancerous, P. Alexander Ataii M.D. can recommend a course of treatment to help.
Experts recommend that everyone has a skin cancer evaluation by the age of 30 and then yearly thereafter. Laser Cliniqúe is the place you need to go for a comprehensive evaluation in San Diego. With the help of the qualified medical team at our clinic, you can determine your skin cancer risk, and hopefully address this problem before it starts. Call today to schedule your appointment, and put your mind at ease.
