Dr. Hecker is fully aware that the incidence of skin cancer is on the rise, and believes that twice yearly skin examinations ensures great skin health. Skin cancers are the most frequently diagnosed cancers in the United States. More than a million estimated new non-melanoma skin cancers are diagnosed in the United States each year. Dr. Hecker believes that causes for the increased incidence of skin cancer include an aging population, improved detection, an increased use of tanning beds, and environmental factors such as depletion of the ozone layer.
