The incidence of skin cancer has reached epidemic proportions in the United States. In fact, the number of skin cancers diagnosed every year in the U.S. exceeds the total of all other types of cancer combined. Skin cancer, including melanoma, targets younger and younger patients and is one of the most common cancer in both men and women in their twenties and thirties. Skin cancer is a particular concern for Thousand Oaks area residents, who enjoy almost year-round sunshine and an active, outdoor lifestyle.
Monthly self examination requires a complete evaluation of the entire skin surface. Melanoma is most common on the back in men and the legs in women, but it can occur anywhere so a thorough, careful self examination is most important. Additionally, annual examination by a dermatologist can also help to identify and treat skin cancers or precancers at an early stage.
