Skin cancer is treatable.
Early detection and treatment are important. When was the last time you book a skin check?
Here are 7 common excuses people give:
1. I don’t have time.
Skin cancers can be life-threatening. Find the time.
2. I am using sun protection. I don’t need a skin examination.
Even with sun protection, you will still need to go for a regular skin examination to be on the safe side.
3. I am uncomfortable.
Skin examinations are quick, non-invasive, and routine. You can ask for a same-sex doctor if necessary.
4. I can’t afford it.
If you have medical insurance look for a provider in your plan. Some clinics bulk billed.
5. I have other more important health issues.
Skin cancer is an important health issue. It can kill. So, make it a priority today.
Don’t make excuses for a skin examination. Call your doctor today for a referral to a good dermatologist.
