Skin Cancer

Patients often notice skin symptoms such as itching, redness, rashes, and pain. Dermatologists use their expertise to identify and treat these conditions by taking thorough histories and conducting examinations. Dermatologists visually inspect the skin, nails, and hair to identify abnormalities, rashes, or growths. Many examinations can be completed virtually via either videos or photos. 

Dermatological conditions have various causes, including: genetics, infection, environmental factors, hormones, and commonly, a combination of these issues.

Telemedicine has made dermatological diagnosis more accessible. Patients can consult dermatologists remotely using video calls or via photographs. Through telemedicine, patients can share clear photos of skin issues for assessment, and provide detailed information about symptoms, duration, and any relevant medical history. Dermatologists can conduct a visual examination and make a diagnosis.

Treatment options vary depending on the condition but may include: topical medications (such as creams, ointments, or lotions), oral medications (antibiotics, antifungals, steroids), lifestyle changes (dietary changes and skin care routines), or sometimes surgical/procedural management (biopsy, skin cancer removal, cyst or abscess drainage).


Some general recommendations for overall skin, hair and nail health include: practicing daily sun protection, maintaining a well-balanced diet, hydrating adequately, and properly cleansing your skin while avoiding harsh products.

If you have a dermatological condition, follow these steps: take prescribed medications as directed by your dermatologist, complete follow-up appointments for skin cancer screenings and condition management, and be vigilant about changes in your skin, nails, or hair and report them promptly.

Practice regular handwashing and avoid sharing personal items to prevent infections. Stress can exacerbate some skin conditions, so engage in stress-reduction techniques. Identify and avoid triggers that worsen your condition (e.g., allergens or irritants).

A board-certified Dermatologist is a medical doctor (MD or DO) that has completed 4 years of medical school as well as 1 year of internship and a minimum of 3 years of dermatology residency. They are the experts in over 3,000 conditions affecting hair, skin, and nails. They can see patients of all ages and are able to address medical, surgical, and cosmetic concerns.
Most people see a Dermatologist once yearly for an overall skin check. If there is a personal or family history of skin cancers, abnormal moles, or other conditions such as acne, eczema, or psoriasis, the frequency of visits can be increased.
Dermatologists recommend performing a once-monthly self-skin examination to check for new or changing spots. You should examine all aspects of your skin, using mirrors or a partner as needed. Do not forget to try to examine your scalp, look between fingers and toes, check the bottoms of your feet, and examine the groin area. Please have any new or changing lesions examined by a Dermatologist to determine if any treatments are needed.
UV damage is the biggest skin aging culprit. Daily sun protection measures (even in the winter) is the best preventative step. Avoiding smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, other drugs, staying hydrated, and eating a well-balanced diet can all have positive anti-aging effects as well.
Topical vitamin A products (retinols, retinoids) are the overall most effective topicals for addressing skin aging concerns such as loss of elasticity, fine lines, skin texture changes, and dyspigmentation. There are various over-the-counter products and prescription products that contain these active ingredients. People with very sensitive skin can sometimes have a more difficult time tolerating these topicals as they can be irritating to the skin.
