Sunburn Suspicion

Question

After getting a bad sunburn last month, I have been worried about skin cancer. I have a few moles/freckles that I have become suspicious of and I was wondering if I could get them checked out at Student Health & Wellness, or if I could get more information of a dermatologist in the area.

Answer

Yes, a healthcare provider at Student Health & Wellness can check out your moles and freckles for you. If necessary, Student Health & Wellness can refer you to a dermatologist. You should seek medical attention if you notice any changes in your skin that worry you. Not all skin changes are caused by skin cancer, but early detection is key to successful treatment.
