The Importance of Skin Cancer Screening

 

Skin Cancer Jupiter, FL Noah Weisberg MD

 

When it comes to skin cancer, the earlier you can catch it, the better. As reported by the

Skin Cancer Foundation, “The risk of dying from the disease, in fact, is directly related to

the depth of the cancer, which is directly related to the amount of time it has been

growing unnoticed.” In other words, the longer skin cancer exists, the longer it grows,

and the longer it grows, the harder it is to treat. For this reason, skin cancer screening

exists to help patients catch the cancer as soon as possible. Skin cancer screening can be

an important, even life‐saving, service.

 

What Is Skin Cancer Screening?

When you come into our office for a skin cancer screening, here is what you can expect:

the professional examination and advice of a trained skin cancer specialist. We visually

inspect your skin to see if there are any potentially cancerous areas and determine

whether or not those areas require treatment. The process does not require blood work

and is fairly straightforward—nonetheless, it can make all the difference in spotting

cancer early.

 

How Common Is Skin Cancer?

The hard truth is that skin cancer is the most common cancer in America today,

affecting one in five people, according to the American Academy of Dermatology. Skin

cancer can affect men or women, people of any race or skin color, at a wide range of

ages. The two most common types of cancer (basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell

carcinoma) have a 95 percent cure rate when spotted early and treated.

For the best prevention against skin cancer development, it’s important to regularly

check your own skin as well as to come in for a screening yearly.

 

If you live in Jupiter, Palm Beach Gardens, Hobe Sound, Stuart, Jensen Beach, West Palm Beach, North Palm Beach, Tequesta or any of the surrounding Palm Beach or Martin County areas contact us at 561-775-6011 and one of our representatives will be happy to assist you in setting up your annual skin cancer screening.

Applying Sunscreen and Skin Cancer Prevention Month

As a public service to our patients and members of our community please take a moment to review the information below.

Valisure, an independent laboratory tested hundreds of sunscreens and after sun care products and found 27% of the samples tested positive for Benzene, a known carcinogen.  The tests included sunscreen lines like Banana Boat and Neutrogena.

According to a CBS news report on the study, Benzene is used as a solvent and can be found in trace amounts in cigarette smoke, gasoline, glues, adhesives, cleaning products and paint strippers.  Benzene is also a known carcinogen responsible for blood cancers, like leukemia.

Unfortunately, large gaps in regulation of sunscreen and sun care products exist due to many of the products being considered cosmetic by the FDA.   As a result of the tests completed by Valisure a Citizen Petition was made to the FDA by Valisure calling for tighter regulations of the industry.

Petition to FDA

https://www.valisure.com/blog/valisure-news/valisure-detects-benzene-in-sunscreen/

 

The test results were completed in 2020 and companies like Johnson & Johnson, the maker of Neutrogena and other companies like Banana Boat voluntarily recalled many of their products in July of 2021.  To find out if your sunscreen or sun care products contain Benzene you can access the Valisure test results below:

Sunscreens testing positive for Benzene:

Sunscreens testing negative for Benzene:
