Mole Inspection Skin Cancer Marietta, GA

With summer winding down, school back in session, and fall right around the corner now is a good time to take care of your skin and get your moles checked. Limiting or avoiding exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation can reduce the risk of skin cancer. The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends an annual full-body exam to check your moles. Because moles come in all shapes, sizes, and colors, the best way to ensure there are no atypical moles or skin cancer is by making an appointment to get your moles checked. Dr. Kayal at Kayal Dermatology & Skin Cancer Specialists specializes in full-body exams and checking to make sure your moles are not at risk.

Early detection of skin cancer gives the greatest chance of success. There are three major types of skin cancer a dermatologist is looking for:

  • Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) – This is the most common type of skin cancer. BCC’s appear as a raised, flesh-colored, pearly bump on the skin that was exposed to the sun. They are usually seen on the head, neck, and arms but can form anywhere on the body.
  • Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) – This is the second most common type of skin cancer. SCC’s appear as a red firm bump or scaly patch. These will appear on any sun-exposed skin.
  • Melanoma – This is the deadliest form of skin cancer. Melanoma is formed in a mole or appears as a new dark spot on the skin. They are brown-to-black in color. These moles often change in size, shape, color, or elevation.

Between the annual full-body exams, you should be doing self-checks on a routine basis. Follow the ABCDEs of self-checks. (A) asymmetry, (B) changes in border, (C)changes in color, (D)changes in diameter, or (E) any evolving moles.

First time ever at a dermatology office! So I was a little nervous... But they have a very friendly staff and it was nice meeting PA Joel! Felt comfortable and he was informative & made me feel like I wasn’t the only person dealing with my issue. I can’t wait to see some results and get some relief!!

Eve L.

Love this place! Everyone is so caring, and very helpful in each way possible. Highly recommend this place for skin care and even skin cancer!

Detlef K.

I’ve been going here awhile. I’ve got a few pesky issues, some due to my not allowing areas to completely heal, sins that prolongs my already glacier like speed healing! I really appreciate Dr. Kayal and Joel who combine to take of me and my family.

Michael V.

Was greeted upon my arrival, very nice waiting room, was taken back immediately. Very professional, caring and friendly staff. They want to help you. The PA Joel was very knowledgeable and knew exactly how to help me. I was given a prescription to address the problem. Will be back with other issues, keep up the good work.

Lisa W.

PA Brown is very attentive to my son's needs. I have not had any difficulty getting appointments when needed. I think this practice provides excellent service. I definitely recommend Kayal Dermatology for all of your skin needs.
