Skin Cancer Often Goes Undetected During Routine Check-ups

Posted on February 17, 2016 by Disability Help Group

While undergoing treatment for skin cancer, or any type of cancer, you may be able to receive long-term disability benefits. Disability benefits can help to offset your lost income.

Health Day
reports that non-dermatologist physicians could benefit from skin cancer education. This comes after a new study found that general doctors who refer patients to a dermatologist because of a suspicious lesion, have often missed another lesion that ends up being cancerous.

At the same time, it is not uncommon for there to be a risk of skin cancer elsewhere, even if the suspicious lesion is found not to be. So while referring patients to dermatologists is still helpful, it is believed that too many lesions are being missed by general doctors. That leaves some patients who are in need of a referral, without one.

This could be potentially life-saving since more than 3.5 million cases of skin cancer are diagnosed every year in the United States.

When a disability causes you to be unable to work for a long period of time, you should consult with a Plantation long-term disability representative. a representative can evaluate your claim to determine if you qualify.
