In honor of Melanoma Awareness Month this May, the healthcare providers here at Gynecology Associates of Gwinnett wanted to take some time to focus on skin cancer and its effects. While it may not be a reproductive health concern, it’s a fact that melanomas are among the most common forms of cancer for women. It’s extremely important for women to be aware of the warning signs of skin cancer, their personal risk factors, and how melanoma can be treated in order to properly protect themselves.
Our very own Dr. Kristine Gould recently had the pleasure of speaking with Dr. Jing Gill of North Georgia Dermatology about melanoma via webinar. Dr. Gill is a board-certified dermatologist who specializes in the treatment of skin cancer. Over the course of their discussion, Dr. Gould and Dr. Gill touched on the importance of early diagnosis of skin cancer, how melanomas are diagnosed, what kind of moles and skin marks to look out for, how to be proactive in the fight against melanoma, and many more related topics.
