Your skin is your body’s very first line of defense. Most people don’t realize their skin is the body’s largest and fastest growing organ. It protects you and the rest of your internal organs from harmful external influences–everything from UVA/UVB rays to deadly viruses. Caring for your skin is an important part of a healthy lifestyle.
Skin conditions can range from unsightly blemishes that affect self-esteem to skin cancers. Spotting skin cancer–melanoma–in its early stages could save your life. That is why it is so important to evaluate yourself regularly and immediately seek professional advice when you notice changes in your skin.
At Northshore Dermatology, we are experts at diagnosing and treating melanoma and other skin cancers, along with actinic keratosis (precancerous growths).
