Skin Cancer Screening: Dermatologist vs Primary Care
Dermatology is a field in medicine that focuses on the skin, which is the largest organ in the human body, along with the hair and nails. Over their years of training, dermatologists learn to diagnosis and treat various skin disorders. One of the most important diseases seen are skin cancers, as the number of individuals affected has been on the rise. Dermatologists can detect not only skin cancer, but precancerous lesions and photo damage that predisposes one to skin cancer. Primary Care physicians are not trained to detect deadly skin cancer nor the predecessor lesion to cancer which can save lives.
