You can check element exits or not using

bool isElementDisplayed = driver.findElement(By.xpath("element")).isDisplayed()

Remember, findElementthrows exception if it doesn't find element, so you need to properly handle it.

In one of my application I handled exception by checking element in separate function,

    private bool IsElementPresent(By by)
            return true;
        catch (NoSuchElementException)
            return false;

Call function,

            if (IsElementPresent(By.Id("element name")))
                //do if exists
                //do if does not exists
