Spot & Mole Checks

It is hard to believe that a dark growth as small as a pencil eraser can be fatal, but the reality is that melanoma is one of the most lethal forms of cancer, especially among young adults.

Early detection is the key to the cure, and a trained board certified dermatologist is the recognized expert for this vital detection. Through a quick and simple spot check, we can quickly pick out any suspicious moles and spots. Our board certified dermatologists and highly-qualified board certified nurse practitioners and physician assistants make every effort to not only inspect the skin for suspicious lesions but also quickly test any "off-colored" growths with the simple removal of the spot.

What are the signs of a suspicious growth?

Any spot which displays the following signs should be examined by a specialist:

  • Has been present for longer than a month
  • Remains irritated or bleeds
  • Has an asymmetrical shape 
  • Is itchy or inflamed
  • Has irregular borders
  • Has multiple shades of color
  • Has grown in diameter
  • Has become raised
  • Shows changing color, especially towards darker shades
  • Appears differently than the other moles on your body

Board certified dermatologists Dr. Robert Benson, Dr. April Sanchez, Dr. Falon Brown, Dr. Jessica Wilson, and Dr. Nick Frank with the expert staff of nurse practitioners and physician assistants at Benson Dermatology are committed to effective skin cancer prevention, detection, and treatment. Your skin and health are important to us.

We are dedicated to serving the Northshore, New Orleans, and Baton Rouge. Contact us today!
