    Skin cancer here, basal cell, which is not life threatening but locally destructive here. You’ve had one of these before. “Yes” And we’ve removed it now, it’s all clear, but we’re gonna actually move, it’s called the double advancement flap, where I’m gonna move this tissue a little up and move this tissue down to cover this little baby Tyson bite. …that we have here.

    DermTV – Skin Cancer Statistics [DermTV.com Epi #203]

    [music] Hello, I’m Dr. Neal Schultz [pause] and welcome to DermTV. As we approach the end of May, National Skin Cancer Awareness Month, there’s one more very important point I’d like to make about skin cancer. Melanoma is the only preventable cancer for which the mortality rate continues to increase. In the 30-year period, from 1975 to 2005 the death rate for melanoma has increased a dramatic forty-percent. It’s gone from 225 deaths per million Americans to 310 deaths per million Americans. What does that translate to you? Well in the year 2010 with 300 million Americans that means this year 9,000 Americans will die from melanoma or one approximately…

    DermTV – How to Avoid Skin Irritation while Shaving [DermTV.Com Epi #020]

    [music] Hello, I’m Dr. Neal Schultz [pause] and welcome to DermTV. For most women, controlling unwanted hair is a necessary evil. But a particularly convenient way to control that hair is with shaving. Unfortunately, a lot of women experience shaving irritation because they just don’t know the tips and tricks to avoid it, so let me help you. First, and most important, shave only in the shower. At the beginning of the shower, use a cleanser on the areas that you‘re going to shave, and the reason for that is the cleanser will strip the oils off the hairs, so those hairs can be penetrated by and softened by the…

    DermTV – How to Treat Dark Upper Lip Skin [DermTV.com Epi #381]

    Hello, I’m Dr. Neal Schultz [pause] And welcome to DermTV. Darkening of the upper lip is more often a problem for women than men. And obviously it’s more troublesome to women because it can look like a mustache! But today, I’m only going to talk about actual darkening of the upper lip skin, not hair, which is a different topic. So, this darkening often looks like a horizontal tan or brown band across most of the upper lip, and it usually doesn’t touch the lip line. As a result, there’s a very thin strip of normal colored skin between the actual lip line and the dark appearing band. And this…

    11 skin cancer questions answered by a dermatologist

    A dermatologist is a doctor who specialises in treating and diagnosing all conditions to do with the skin, the hair and the nails. They have more training after qualifying to be a doctor. They undertake at least 2 years training as a junior doctor in the general hospital system. Then they go on to do four years of speciality training before becoming a dermatologist. If you do need to see a dermatologist, your GP or skin cancer doctor can refer you directly. Skin cancer is a result of damage to the skin cells from UV light, which is either from the sun or solariums. We get skin cancer from cumulative…

    Wind Chill and Your Skin [DermTV.com Epi. #532]

    Wind chill is the perceived decrease in air temperature that your skin feels when it’s exposed to moving cold air. That cold air makes your exposed skin lose heat and moisture faster than normal. So when the wind chill is real strong, all the problems that dry cold winter air causes are increased and intensified. While you should always apply a moisturizer to protect exposed parts of your skin before going outside in the winter, do you need to rethink that moisturizer to ensure that it protects against blistering cold wind and its wind chill? Yes, and I’ll explain how in this episode. Hello, I’m Dr. Neal Schultz [pause] And…

    DermTV – Even Small Moles Can Become Skin Cancer [DermTV.com Epi #301]

    [music] Hello, I’m Dr. Neal Schultz [pause] and welcome to DermTV. I hope you’re all doing a skin self exam every month… and also having a complete skin screening exam for pre-cancers and skin cancers… by a dermatologist every year. People ask whether very small moles can turn into melanoma, but more importantly, if they can already be melanoma. The simple answer to both unfortunately is yes but the good news is that tiny melanomas are almost always 100% curable. To help you while you’re checking your moles, use the ABCDE rule to give you objective criteria to help you figure out if a mole’s suspicious, and if you then…
