Here at the office of Charles L. G. Halasz, M.D., the top Norwalk dermatologist, some of the most important services that we offer are related to skin cancer treatment. Skin cancer is a serious issue that is affecting patients of varying ages today. Current estimates show that one in five Americans will develop skin cancer, and the rates have been increasing for at least thirty years. The American Cancer Society recommends that both a men and women have a skin-cancer related checkup and undergo counseling about the dangers of sun exposure as part of regular health screenings starting at the age of twenty. If you have a family history of skin cancer, or a personal history of skin cancer, it is important that you schedule regular appointments with our Norwalk dermatologist so that Dr. Halasz can make sure that you are in good health over time and that there are no recurrences. If you are experiencing changes in your skin, such as changes to freckles, abnormal colorations throughout your skin, or any other sort of changes, you should schedule an appointment with our Norwalk dermatologist right away so that we can evaluate your symptoms. The earlier skin cancer is detected, the greater the chance that it can be treated most effectively and cured. In order to prevent skin cancer, it is important to take protective measures whenever you are in the sun, such as wearing sunscreen with high SPF, keeping your skin as covered as possible, and limiting your time in direct sun exposure.
