When was your last annual skin check? According to the American Academy of Dermatology, everyone should have a full-body skin cancer exam once a year. Have you noticed any changes in your skin’s appearance, such as redness, itching, dry patches, or pigment changes? These all call for a visit to your Chesapeake dermatologist, especially if over-the-counter creams, lotions, or ointments aren’t working. Your skin health is a vital part of your overall health.

A Skin Cancer Screening Is Your First Line of Defense

Our experienced Chesapeake dermatologist will thoroughly examine your skin, including any cancerous or pre-cancerous skin patches, to detect melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer. If you receive a skin cancer diagnosis, our immediate next step is developing a custom treatment plan just for you.

We perform many in-office skin cancer treatments, including standard excision, cryotherapy, scraping and burning, and photodynamic therapy (PDT). We also provide Mohs surgery at our neighboring Virginia Beach office, a treatment known for both its precision and incredibly high success rate (up to 99%).
