A full body skin exam is a great way to diagnose skin conditions and ensure early detection of cancer. At Florida Skin Center, we offer full body skin exams to men and women living in Fort Myers, Punta Gorda, Cape Coral, and Lehigh Acres, FL.
What is a Full Body Skin Exam?
A full body skin exam is a visual examination of the skin to analyze skin conditions or check for cancer and precancerous growths. We recommend annual skin examinations to ensure that skin cancer can be caught as early as possible. This is especially important for those who spend a lot of time in the sun or are over the age of 40. A full body exam can include examining growths, sun damage, birthmarks, rashes, acne, and other skin abnormalities.
What if I Think I Am Developing Skin Cancer?
If you think you might be developing skin cancer, we encourage you to come in for a full body skin exam. Florida Skin Center is one of the nation’s top providers of skin checks, having performed over 700 complimentary skin examinations. If it has been longer than 12 months since your last screening, or you have noticed any unusual growths or moles, you should schedule one at your earliest convenience.
What if I Am Diagnosed with Something During My Exam?
If we detect skin cancer, precancerous growths, or other skin conditions during your exam, we can immediately develop a treatment plan to help you manage and treat your symptoms. We offer skin cancer treatments for the most common types of skin cancer, which includes Mohs surgery, an advanced technique for squamous cell carcinoma and basal cell carcinoma. If you are diagnosed with any other skin condition, we offer many medical dermatology services to help.
How Much Does a Skin Cancer Screening Cost?
At Florida Skin Center, we offer free skin checks to everyone. This is part of a national campaign to help diagnose skin cancer early and help guests find the treatment that they need. We perform skin cancer screenings free of charge, whether guests have insurance or not. If you are diagnosed with skin cancer and looking for treatment options, please refer to our skin cancer treatment page.
