Dr. Amir Bajoghli Stops Deadly Melanoma With Early Detection

MCLEAN, VA--(Marketwired - March 10, 2016) - Dr. Amir Bajoghli, of McLean and Woodbridge Virginia, saves lives with skin cancer screenings.

Over 3 million people in the United States alone are afflicted by skin cancer each year, and that number has been steadily rising. It is the most common form of cancer as well as the easiest to cure, when diagnosed and treated early.

However, if left undetected this form of cancer can lead to disfigurement and possibly be fatal. Early detection is the key to fighting the disease and enjoying a long and cancer-free life. The importance of regular and thorough skin cancer screenings is critical and paramount.

According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, "Skin cancers found and removed early are almost always curable." Dr. Bajoghli takes pride in his skillset in detecting early stages of skin cancer. Recently, the Washington Nationals recognized Dr. Bajoghli for detecting and diagnosing an early malignant melanoma (type of skin cancer) on one of the members of the organization, which led to early treatment and intervention that saved his life.

"The first step to stopping cancer is spotting cancer," says Dr. Bajoghli. If caught early, malignant melanoma is 100% curable, and if caught late it can be 100% fatal.

Since 2001, Amir Bajoghli, MD has been active in the practice of dermatology, after completing his training in Boston in dermatology and Mohs surgery.

Dr. Amir Bajoghli was named Top Dermatologist and Mohs Surgeon in the Washingtonian Magazine from 2005 - 2012, as well as the Northern VA magazine. 

Dr. Bajoghli is board certified in dermatology and has a flourishing private practice with offices in McLean and Woodbridge. Dr. Bajoghli has been involved in teaching medical students and residents at Inova Fairfax Hospital, Georgetown University, and George Washington University Schools of Medicine.
