Screening and Treating Skin Cancer
The two most common types of skin cancer that our patients experience are melanoma and basal cell carcinoma. Typically, melanoma will start as a mole, while basal cell appears as a small white or flesh-colored bump. When performing a skin cancer screening, we will look for these signs along with other symptoms.
While melanoma is considered to be the most severe form of skin cancer, early detection has a very high cure rate of nearly 100%. This is why it is so important to check your skin regularly for any suspicious signs. Both exposed and unexposed areas of your body can get cancer.
For basal cell carcinoma, it will present as a malignant tumor. While this sounds scary, the cancer is typically localized to one area and does not spread, making it easy to remove. This is why basal cell carcinoma is considered less severe when compared to melanoma.
