It really depends on risk factors like:
1) Having a family history of skin cancer
2) Having a history of childhood sunburns
3) Having fair skin and/or freckles
4) Having lots of moles.
So, if you are at a high risk, then you should go see your dermatologist at least once a year. However, even if you’re not, it doesn’t hurt to get regular yearly checkups. And no matter how few or many risk factors you have, you should always be hyper-aware of your body and anything that looks unusual on your skin.
