This month is Melanoma Month. Please make your appointment today for a complete skin exam! Melanoma is increasing exponentially not only in the United States, but worldwide, but death from melanoma can be prevented by early detection. I use a dermatoscope to detect early lesions and prevent unnecessary surgeries. We also look for signs of other diseases, such as diabetes, lupus, liver, heart and kidney problems, so it really is for everyone, and is recommended by The American Medical Association and The American Academy of Dermatology.
