Total Body Exams
Total body skin examinations are performed by dermatologists (skin doctors) to search for any unusual or suspicious lesions or conditions on the skin surface. When examining people at high risk for skin cancer, dermatologists search for atypical or abnormal-looking moles that could be melanoma, and they also check any previous skin biopsy sites for signs of recurrence.
