Google Dollops of Diane: Three Reasons You Should Have A Skin Cancer Check NOW!

Three Reasons You Should Have A Skin Cancer Check NOW!

 (1) It's simple, easy, and pain free.

(2) You can see your regular primary care physician. No need to make an appointment with a dermatologist right away if you've never been to one before. Simply keep an eye on your skin (monthly self checks are recommended!) and tell your doctor of any changes or concerns at your annual visit. They will refer you as necessary. This is also a great way to ensure you get a yearly physical!

(3) It could just save your life. My father passed away of Melanoma Skin Cancer when I was only two months old. He missed out on almost his whole life and left behind a family that would never really know him. Don't let this happen to you or someone you love.

This week I had my annual skin check up. This is your friendly reminder to go do the same!

  1. This is such a great reminder. I see my dermatologist annually for acne and she does a skin check. But I wouldn't have thought to do it otherwise.

    I'm so sorry about your Dad.

  2. Thanks for reminding us, Diane. So important, of course. I am a sun worshipper, but I'm also sensible and a lover of sun screen. There is nothing worse than skin damage from the sun - and skin cancer? Anything to avoid it. Love and hugs.
