Skin cancer is among the most common forms of cancer in the country. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, approximately 1 in 5 Americans will be diagnosed with skin cancer in their lifetime. Since skin cancer can take on various appearances, it’s vital to have a medical professional examine your skin to ensure a happy, healthy future. We perform total body checks for people of all genders, ages, and skin types to better accomplish just that.

Dr. Trenkle and her team believe it is very importance to have undergo a total body check to screen for medical concerns and other irregularities on the skin. Contact us today to schedule your total body check at your earliest convenience.
How many total body checks should I receive?
Dr. Trenkle recommends scheduling a total body check appointment with us at least once a year to optimally monitor the health of your skin. Patients who have had a history with skin cancer–especially melanoma– should be checked a few times a year. Ultimately, your medical history will ultimately determine how often we recommend scheduling a full body check.
What can I expect during a total body check?
A total body check is a preventative measure to ensure optimal health and quality of life for your future. During your appointment, Dr. Trenkle or one of our certified providers will carefully and thoroughly examine the skin from head to toe. We’ll be specifically looking for any irregularities such as abnormal moles that may pose a concern.
What are my treatment options if an irregularity is found?
During your total body check, either Dr. Trenkle or one of our providers will review your treatment options with you based on the discovered irregularity, if necessary.
