Moles

Dr. Sergay provides full skin exams with dermoscopy (see below) to evaluate moles.  Moles, or nevi,  may be flat or raised;  lighter, darker or similar to your skin tone.  Even though many are benign, some can become cancerous. If you have moles, board-certified dermatologist Dr. Amanda Sergay can assess your skin and determine if there are problems.

 

It is recommended to have moles checked once a year and sooner if there are changes in shape or size, or the mole starts to bleed or itch.

Dermoscopy

Dr. Sergay is one of the few dermatologists in the area that utilizes dermoscopy for all skin exams.  A handheld instrument called a dermatoscope helps Dr. Sergay appreciate skin structures that are not visible to the naked eye. Dermoscopy, also known as epiluminescence microscopy has been shown to increase accuracy of diagnoses and prevent unnecessary biopsies.
