NOTIFICATION OF EXTENT OF SKIN SCREEN
The purpose of your skin screen visit is basically to offer and give you a quick check to advise you if anything needs to be done with the particular skin lesion(s) that you are concerned about. It is not intended to be a comprehensive, full body skin cancer screening visit for the complete documentation of all of your skin lesions or for recommendations, if any, for the treatment of your skin or skin lesion(s).
If your skin lesion(s) needs more evaluation and possible treatment and if you do not currently have a local primary care physician), NEBRASKA MELANOMA CENTER ® will refer you to local physicians and medical groups who are accepting new patients in Nebraska.
NEBRASKA MELANOMA CENTER ® is a public-private effort in healthcare services related to educating Nebraskans about proper skin care as well as the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of skin conditions, including skin cancers. If you undergo a skin biopsy, the skin specimen may be sent to NEBRASKA MELANOMA CENTER ® and its affiliate, Pathology Services, P.C. for processing, evaluation, diagnosis, and inclusion in its database.
Having your skin biopsy specimen(s) sent to Pathology Services, PC. is not required to avail yourself of the resources of NEBRASKA MELANOMA CENTER ®. If your healthcare provider sends your skin biopsy specimen elsewhere, NEBRASKA MELANOMA CENTER ® would appreciate a copy of your pathology report to include its diagnosis in its Nebraska cancer registry. Ongoing national research furthers our efforts to continually improve skin disease diagnosis and treatment for Nebraskans.
NEBRASKA MELANOMA CENTER ® is a service mark of Pathology Services, P.C.
