A dermatologist is a medical doctor who specializes in treating the skin, hair, and nails. Dermatologists care for people of all ages.
I see my dermatologist at least once a year for a body check. The dermatologist spotted the melanoma, had it biopsied, and referred me to a Mohs surgeon. He removed the melanoma from the back of my right arm.
Since then, I see my dermatologist every six months for a full body check. Over the years, I have had another melanoma removed from my left arm, one basal cell carcinoma removed from my left inner thigh, a squamous cell excised from my left shoulder, and another on my left cheek. Everyone should be checked at least every six months.
