We read about it all the time. Cancer is a lethal illness that can take many forms and impact our lives drastically in unfortunate ways. Here at Rejuvie Clinic, we cannot stress enough about the importance of routine check-ups to your medical professionals, especially screenings for cancer.
With that said, we are going to talk about one particular cancer that is often associated with tropical climates like Bali, and that is skin cancer. We say tropical climates because we get exposed to the sun’s harmful UV rays more than other types of geographical regions.
To help you prepare for the screening, we’ll be sharing what is actually involved in a skin cancer screening.
Skin Cancer Screening
The screening for skin cancer is performed with a medical instrument called a dermascope. This instrument allows the dermatologist to inspect the surface of your skin for benign and malignant tumors. Additionally, the dermascope can also reveal any skin pigmentations, as well as detailed patterns in the blood vessels. It is these tiny details that need to be inspected and evaluated to screen for early signs of cancer.
They will inspect areas that are most often exposed to the sun and other additional areas that they deem necessary for inspection. The overall process takes on average 30 to 60 minutes here at Rejuvie Aesthetic Clinic.
In addition to the screening, the dermatologist can offer to remove any visible lesions if there are any. This is obviously performed with your consent, and we will advise on what the procedure involves should you agree to it.
To conclude, with cancer it is always best to take preventive measures before it’s too late – regardless of what type of cancer. And one of the best ways to do so is with regular screenings.
