Factors that are known to increase the risk for skin cancer include:
Previous history of skin cancer
Fair skin type that burns easily
Significant number of moles or at least a few “funny” (dysplastic) looking moles
Previous skin cancer in a first-degree relative
Previous significant sunburn or regular sun exposure
Previous solarium (tanning bed) use
Immunosuppression (from medications or transplant recipients)
Skin cancer checks serve as an opportunity for a comprehensive evaluation that will potentially allow:
Early detection of a skin cancer
Monitoring of suspicious skin lesions with serial clinical, microscopic, and total body photography
Risk assessment of whether regular skin checks are recommended
Peace of mind
