Skin Cancer Incidence Continues to Rise

Skin cancer is more than 15x more common than the next most common types of cancer, and the incidence is rising.  According to numbers presented at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology, there were about 3.7 million skin cancers in 2009.  Unfortunately these numbers have been increasing each year.  Find out more here.  The incidence of melanoma, the most dangerous form of skin cancer, appears to be underestimated based on a recent study: melanoma study.

At Cornerstone we believe skin cancer screening is very important.  We are the only primary care practice in Hampton Roads that offers digital mole mapping technology.  Want to learn more?  Contact us–we’d be happy to talk with you!
