Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. It is reported that 1.3 million Americans will be diagnosed with skin cancer this year, and over 99% can be cured if treated early enough.
Exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun and a history of childhood sunburns are the main causes of many skin cancers. In some cases, skin cancer may be prevented. Skin cancer that is detected and treated early is very curable. It is important to have regular skin and mole checks by your dermatologist.
Not only does Palm Beach Dermatology Group have four board-certified dermatologists with expertise in skin cancer, but we are also proud to have an on-site dermatopathologist – a doctor who analyzes skin samples to detect cancer cells or precancerous changes. Our experienced and professional staff ensures that you will receive the best care possible and healthy beautiful skin for a lifetime.
