On Overall Health - Get Your Skin Checked!!
As part of my New Year's Resolution, I've moved my focus to overall health. That means that yesterday my husband and I took our annual visit to the dermatologist for a full body scan.
Neither of us try to tan, and are always extra cautious when going out in the sun. I always apply at least a SPF 50+. That doesn't mean that we don't still need to keep an eye on things.
For years my husband had a couple moles on his arm that he didn't feel good about. As we moved around the country and visited new primary care physicians for check-ups, my husband always brought up the moles. Was it something he should get checked out further?? The answer was always the same - "Nah, don't worry about it."
