Melanoma or skin cancer can be a terrifying scare for us all, as it is a truly real danger for nearly everyone.

Our expert safe can give you a far more accurate diagnosis than a simple at home quiz from your online search ever could, and provide you with treatment for any condition your skin happens to have, and work alongside you to prevent any further damage and give you the best skin care possible for an improved overall health.
Melanoma may be thought of as something that could never happen to you, but in fact one in give Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime, with numbers rapidly increasing over the last thirty years, largely due to the popularization of tanning salons. This love of tan skin is also mostly likely linked to the high percentage of melanomas detected on the torsos of women as young as 15-29 years of age. The chances of getting skin cancer are greatly increased if you have moles, or a history of skin cancer in your family. But how can you tell the difference between a healthy mole and a melanoma? Be on the lookout for any changes in a suspicious looking mole for about a month using the ABCDE method. This stands for asymmetry, border irregularity, color (if the color changes or is not entirely the same), diameter, and evolution. Any mole growth should be examined closely for these signs. Skin cancer may sound scary, but with an early diagnosis a melanoma can actually be easily treated. Your local Queens dermatologist can provide you with the tools and information you need, combined with the friendly and knowledgeable council of Dr. Charles Kleinberg to guide you every step of the way.
