After your initial encounter, unless you have a tumor-like condition that requires no further evaluation, you will receive a follow-up appointment.

Patients who have lesions that appear benign may have only one or two follow-up appointments where additional examination and imaging is performed. Patients who require surgery or other treatment for a benign condition will be followed for a time period determined by the diagnosis.

Our patients with malignant tumors are followed for at least ten years. The frequency of follow-up is determined by the diagnosis.
