Screening and Treating Skin Cancer
While there are many forms of cancer that can affect the skin, the two most common ones are melanoma and basal cell carcinoma. Typically, melanoma will present as a mole, while basal cell appears as a small white or flesh-colored bump. This is why if you find a new mole or lesion on your skin, you should visit our clinic for skin cancer screening.
While melanoma is considered to be the most severe type of skin cancer, early detection provides a very high cure rate of nearly 100%. This is why it is so important to regularly check your skin and visit our dermatologist, Dr. George R. Woodbury, Jr., right away if you discover any suspicious signs.
Type of Skin Treatments
Typically, our specialists will use a combination of medical and surgical procedures to treat problem areas of your skins. If you have lesions or other growths, your doctor may need to remove them with a procedure that may or may not require stitches. The removed tissue will then be sent to a lab for further analysis to test for any underlying conditions such as cancer. Our doctor may also decide to use liquid nitrogen cryotherapy to remove the lesion.
When visiting our clinic for dermatology services for the first time, we will typically begin with a consultation and physical examination. We will then perform any necessary tests and schedule any follow-up appointments that are required.
