What is Dermatopathology?

What is Dermatopathology?

Did you know that Dr. Elizabeth Anderson and Dr. Quyn Rahman are both fellowship trained and hold dual board certifications in Dermatopathology?

The Association of American Medical Colleges defines dermatopathologists as “having the expertise to diagnose and monitor diseases of the skin including infectious, immunologic, degenerative, and neo-plastic diseases. This entails the examination and interpretation of specially prepared tissue sections, cellular scrapings, and smears of skin lesions by means of routine and special (electron and fluorescent) microscopes.”

To provide you with excellent care, Drs. Anderson and Rahman are able to evaluate skin biopsies performed in their office to implement the best possible treatment recommendations with a pathologic diagnosis.

Do You Know How to Choose the Best Sunscreen?

Sunscreen is one of the best ways to prevent skin cancer and can help prevent signs of aging! With so many options on the shelves, do you know how to choose the best kind? Watch this short video produced by The American Academy of Dermatology to learn more about choosing sunscreen.

 

  1. Choose sunscreen with SPF of 30 or higher.
  2. Look for words “Broad-Spectrum” and “Water-Resistant”
  3. Choose sunscreen with titanium dioxide or zinc oxide listed as one of the first ingredients.
  4. Avoid sunscreens that contain fragrance, oils, and para-aminobenzoic acid (PAVA).

No sunscreen is 100% effective, remember to re-apply frequently and after sweating or swimming, seek shade often, and wear protective clothing such as hats and sunglasses.

The American Academy of Dermatology says, “The best sunscreen is the one you’ll wear, so choose one you really like and apply generously before going outside.”

At our Knoxville, TN Office, we carry a variety of Elta MD sunscreens, stop by and ask our staff for more information!
