Skin Cancer Screenings and the Expertise of Dr. Arjun Dupati

Dr. Dupati is a board-certified dermatologist (the only trained professionals – physicians or otherwise) who can perform the highest level skin cancer screenings for patients.

Dear Apollo Dermatology patients,

As your partners in skin health, we are here today to talk about a topic that is often overlooked, yet of paramount importance – skin cancer screenings. Regular screenings can be lifesaving, and are all the more critical when performed by a seasoned expert like our very own Dr. Dupati, who is a Board Certified Dermatologist and Mohs Surgeon.

Why Skin Cancer Screenings?

Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer, affecting millions of people worldwide each year. The good news is that when detected early, it’s highly treatable. Annual screenings play an essential role in early detection, potentially identifying skin cancer before symptoms even begin.

The Expertise of Dr. Dupati

Dr. Dupati, a Board Certified Dermatologist and Mohs Surgeon, is a leading expert in the field. His expertise in dermoscopy, a technique used to evaluate the color and microstructures of the epidermis and the papillary dermis, allows him to spot even the smallest changes in your skin that could indicate the early stages of skin cancer.

As a Board Certified Mohs Surgeon, Dr. Dupati is also trained in Mohs surgery, a precise surgical technique used to treat skin cancer. The process involves progressively removing and examining thin layers of cancer-containing skin until only cancer-free tissue remains, offering the highest cure rates while preserving as much healthy skin as possible.

The Benefits of Annual Screenings

Having an annual skin cancer screening with Dr. Dupati provides several key benefits:

  1. Early Detection: Most skin cancers start as changes or growths on the skin that may not cause discomfort or even look alarming. Dr. Dupati’s trained eye can identify these changes early, increasing the chance of successful treatment.
  2. Prevention: Regular screenings can help identify pre-cancerous lesions which can be treated to prevent them from turning into cancer.
  3. Education: During your screening, you’ll learn about your personal risk factors for skin cancer and the signs to watch for, empowering you to take an active role in your skin health between visits.
  4. Peace of Mind: Knowing that you’re doing everything you can to maintain your skin health can provide significant peace of mind.

In Conclusion

While it’s vital to protect your skin and monitor any changes throughout the year, an annual skin cancer screening with an expert like Dr. Dupati provides an additional layer of protection against skin cancer. These screenings, combined with sun protection and regular self-examinations, are your best defense against this common, but highly treatable, form of cancer.

We encourage each of you, our valued Apollo Dermatology patients, to prioritize your skin health by scheduling your annual skin cancer screening with Dr. Dupati. Together, let’s take proactive steps towards a healthier, cancer-free future.

Stay safe, stay healthy, and remember – we’re here to keep your skin at its best.
