What Can I Expect During My Melanoma Screening?
Your melanoma screening will be performed by Dr. Faryal Siddiqui and our team of medical professionals in our beautiful office. Before your screening begins, Dr. Siddiqui may ask that you remove your clothing and put on a medical gown to easier inspect your skin. During your exam, she will check over each portion of your body and make note of any moles, birthmarks, or growths that you may have. If you do have a growth that appears abnormal, Dr. Siddiqui may recommend a biopsy or removal of the lesion during your visit. Each annual full body skin exam typically takes less than 20 minutes to complete, at which time patients can return to their normal daily activities including work or school.
