Skin Cancer Screening Yourself

From the Colorado Dermatology Institute in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Daily Do of Dermatology - Title

Video Transcript:

So here’s another “Daily Do” from your friendly local dermatologist.

So, I believe that an educated patient is the best patient, and that’s why we’re doing this. So what’s the best way to get a skin cancer screening? You guessed it: you do it yourself! Please watch our other videos that show you how to do a skin cancer screening. Watch our videos on what concerning things look like.

And then guys you just gotta do it. Schedule it in your calendar. If you need an accountability partner, remind each other. If there’s spots on your back you can’t see ask, someone else to look at those once a month. The best way to get a screening is for you to do it yourself after you become educated by reliable sources. Okay?

The second best way is look for free skin cancer screenings in your community. In Colorado Springs, we do it about once a year. It’s usually the first Saturday of the month of May.

Three, go see your local dermatologist. If you have something that is concerning, please come in, have a baseline, let us take a look, and then let us recommend what your screening protocol is for the rest of your life. I promise you we’re gonna recommend you look at yourself every month in the mirror. But how often you need to see us, that’s gonna depend on a lot of factors. So let’s have a conversation. Let’s keep you healthy.
