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)
Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.com
I understand your concern.
It entirely depends on the comfort level 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.
