Dermatology Services Q & A

What dermatology services are available?

The physicians will also soon begin offering injectable therapies to treat hair loss.

 

When should I schedule a dermatology evaluation?

Dermatology services are available to diagnose and treat new symptoms or conditions that affect your skin’s health. If you notice changes in the size or shape of a mole or develop a cyst on your skin, you should call Naperville Internist to schedule a diagnostic evaluation.

Dr. Marwaha and the medical team also offer preventive skin screenings. You should request a consultation if you have a personal or family history of skin cancer. 

The providers offer on-site skin checks and biopsy services to identify skin cancer in the earliest stages, before you may show noticeable symptoms.

 

What happens during a skin biopsy?

A skin biopsy is a procedure to collect samples of cells from your skin to test for cancer. You may need a skin biopsy if Dr. Marwaha and the team identify suspicious moles or patches of skin that may indicate cancer.

During your in-office biopsy, your provider removes a sample of your skin for testing. They may remove tissue layer by layer using a small razor or opt to remove an entire mole using a scalpel.

The team sends the skin sample or mole to a medical lab for further evaluation. They can discuss your results with you in a few days to determine what kind of treatment you need to prevent the spread of cancer.

A biopsy may be a part of your routine skin check to reduce your risk for cancer. Dr. Marwaha may recommend routine skin evaluations if you have a personal history of cancer or if you have a family history of skin cancer.
