Deductibles reset on January 1st, so if you haven’t already booked your annual skin exam with a dermatologist, the end of the year is the best period to take advantage of your health insurance before you start paying toward another deductible.
Detect Precancerous Growths
A skin exam can pinpoint any concerning growths on your skin that could become cancerous. A trained dermatologist can detect precancerous skin before it can turn into basal or squamous cell carcinoma. Common areas of concern include the back, hand, neck, and face. Sun-exposed skin is more likely to develop cancer, but early detection can lead to the most effective treatment.
New or changing moles, discoloration, lesions, and rashes may require further testing or specialized care.
Save Money on Your Visit
If you’ve already reached your deductible, you won’t have to worry about paying out-of-pocket for your appointment. This allows you to reap the benefits of an annual skin exam without additional costs.
Get Answers to Your Skin Concerns
From a family history of cancer to sun damage and wrinkles, the dermatologist is there to answer all of your questions during your visit. An annual skin exam is more than a cancer screening; you have time to speak with a skin expert and address all your concerns.
Identify Your Risk Factors
Those with a family history of skin cancer naturally carry a higher risk. Individuals with red or blonde hair and light-colored eyes are also more likely to develop skin cancer in their lifetime.
A skin exam can help you determine your risk factors to protect yourself from skin cancer. You can also find new ways to manage your symptoms if you have other conditions, such as acne, rosacea, or eczema.
