Can I Get Checked for Nonmelanoma Skin Cancer?

Screenings check for problems in people who don’t have symptoms. Your doctor can check for signs of skin cancer as part of your regular health exam. Or you can schedule an appointment with a dermatologist. This is a skin specialist. Your doctor can also show you ways to monitor your skin regularly for any areas that might develop cancer in the future. This way, you can catch problems and seek medical help before the problems become more serious.
