A trip for a routine doctor’s appointment can sometimes lead to more serious issues. No one wants to hear the word cancer but when it comes to skin cancer, if it’s caught early, it can be treatable. Today people are aware of the dangers of the sun and sunscreen is popular. Unfortunately for the senior population, sunscreen wasn’t deemed a necessity when they were young and no one knew the future medial issues they could incur. At Home Senior Care Inc., we have experienced nurses that can assist with the care of you or your loved ones when dealing with skin cancer or other conditions.
It’s important for doctors to look at your skin on a regular basis to determine if changes are suspicious. With the older population wrinkles, decreased elasticity, age spots and dryness can make it difficult for individuals to detect abnormal areas on their own. Doctors are trained in this area. If the doctor does spot something abnormal, he will remove a sample of the skin for testing. This is called a biopsy and it can determine if you have skin cancer and what type of skin cancer you have. Newton home care service can provide help for seniors dealing with skin cancer.
