Judyth Piazza Discusses Melanoma with Diane S. Berson, MD: Are you at risk?

By Judyth Piazza CEO (Editor)

More than one million new cases of skin cancer will be diagnosed in the United States this year. The American Academy of Dermatology is encouraging people to screen themselves and their loved ones for skin cancer. Performing regular skin self-examinations is an easy way to detect suspicious moles that could be cancerous, and research shows involving a partner in the process can improve the early detection of skin cancer.

This Web site offers the tools and techniques that make skin self-examinations effective. In addition, visit the Academy`s Melanoma/Skin Cancer Screening Program to find free skin cancer screenings in your community. Through this program, more than 1.9 million free screenings have been conducted since 1985.

The American Academy of Dermatology is the largest, most influential and most representative of all dermatologic associations. With a membership of over 16,000, it represents virtually all practicing dermatologists in the United States.

This position of leadership had its beginnings in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, a period which witnessed the emergence of dermatology as a medical specialty and laid the foundations for modern dermatology. It was in this setting that the first dermatologic society was established in 1869.

The biological revolution of the 19th and 20th centuries added further impetus to dermatologic progress. The specialty received official recognition in 1932 with the formation of a Certifying Board for physicians who wished to be certified in dermatology and syphilology. The need for a national organization led to the founding of the American Academy of Dermatology in 1938. Its principal objective: the continuation of dermatologic education.
