Diagnosed in over 5.4 million people annually, skin cancer is the most common form of cancer. Basal cell, squamous cell and melanoma are all forms of skin cancer, each with different levels of severity and invasiveness. Each is treatable when caught early. All skin types and tones, all age groups are susceptible to this danger. Located in New York, NY, Dr. Ariel Ostad encourages early detection and education on how to spot skin cancer.
Skin cancer is visible. Routine skin checks should be part of your personal health regimen. Changes can occur quickly. Detecting the changes early is a key for successful treatment. The earlier skin cancer is found, the better the chances of treating it. When assessing your own skin, use the ABCDE rule.
