Spotlight on Skin Cancer


May is designated as Skin Cancer Awareness Month, so it’s a great time to educate patients about the dangers of skin cancer and promote early detection.

In the United States alone, 20% of the population will develop skin cancer by the age of 70.* Therefore, it’s important to remind your patients to perform monthly head-to-toe self-examinations to look for changes or abnormalities in moles or skin growths.

If you need help engaging with your patients on this topic, the Skin Cancer Foundation website is loaded with information and prevention tips. They also provide a social media toolkit to help spread awareness.

As a dermatologist, you know many patients become worried when you recommend something on the skin to be removed. That’s why CONMED works to provide one less worry for you.

The Hyfrecator 2000 ESU is built on decades of experience. It provides simple, safe, and reliable operation for precise tissue therapy in office-based procedures.
