Can One Self-Examine to Detect Skin Cancer?

by Dr. Natalia Spierings, Dermatology Expert
May 04, 2020

Question: Can I examine myself for skin cancer?

Answer: Yes you can but I always advise leaving this to a professional board-certified or consultant dermatologist if you are at all concerned or just want a routine skin check. When you examine your own skin, look for anything new or any area of broken skin that is not healing over time.
