Dr. Banta performs full skin cancer screening on all new patients and on a yearly basis. Patients that have had a skin cancer will be screened every 3 to 6 months. Full exams provide a way to detect skin cancers early and thereby decrease morbidity and mortality. Education on proper sun protection will be provided. Patients should perform self-exams at home to detect any changes between exams. If any suspicious growths appear, an appointment should be made.
SKIN CANCER SCREENING IS RECOMMENDED ON A YEARLY BASIS.
