A 61-year-old male asked:
How often should an adult male get a full/complete body examination from a dermatologist in order to check for skin cancer/moles? how long should this comprehensive?? examination last?

AT LEAST TWICE A YR.: If you are an outdoor person ,golf ,tennis fishing etc. than you are exposing your self to the rays of the sun unless you wear a hat or put protective sun block on. It is always best to see a dermatologist at least twice a year.
