The ABCDEs of Melanoma

Melanoma is the most dangerous form of skin cancer that can be fatal if not identified and treated early. At Derick Dermatology, we take great pride in protecting our patients from harmful melanomas by performing thorough, full-body, skin examinations. Since last Melanoma Monday, we diagnosed and treated approximately 400 melanomas. If you haven’t come in for your yearly skin exam, or have a mole with any of the American Academy of Dermatology’s “ABCDE” characteristics, call us at (847) 381-8899 to get scheduled.
