When should I begin to have skin cancer screenings?

The American Cancer Society recommends a skin cancer screening every three years beginning at age 20, and then every year once you reach age 40. You may need to be screened more frequently depending on your risk factors for skin cancer, and you can discuss your specific screening needs, including how often you should be screened, during your office visit and consultation.

It's also critically important to call Medex Diagnostic & Treatment Center at the first sign of any irregularities in your skin, including the formation of new moles or other dark-colored or rough-textured spots or patches, or if an existing mole changes in size or color or begins to itch or ooze.

What kinds of treatments are available for acne?

Acne treatment has come a long way during the past several years, and today there are many options that can help reduce or prevent breakouts and help avoid scarring that can occur from more severe forms of acne.

Dr. Khasak bases your specific treatment plan on a complete evaluation of your skin. Depending on your situation, he may recommend one or more of the following:

  • Oral medication
  • Topical creams or gels
  • Light therapy
  • Laser treatment

This is not an inclusive list of treatment options. Dr. Khasak may suggest other approaches, as well as changes in your at-home skin care routine.
