Can I ask to be nude for my exam rather

Patient: Can I ask to be nude for my exam rather than have my doctor look up my shirt to to exam me because I think it would be easier for the doctor to check everything thing and for him to check my moles for cancer(16 year old male)

 

 

Doctor: Hello,Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.comI understand your concern.It entirely depends on the comfort l evel of the patient and hence if you have no problems being naked in front of your primary physician, then he won’t have a problem too.You need to specify to him what exactly are you worried about, and to check you for moles.He will definitely understand.Hope this was helpful.Regards.
