Screening and Treating Skin Cancer
Although there are many ways cancer affects the skin, none are quite as prevalent as melanoma and basal cell carcinoma. Skin cancer can be tricky to detect because of the way it first manifests itself might not seem so alarming. Melanoma might take on the form of a new mole, while basal cell carcinoma would appear like a white or flesh-colored bump. That’s why we encourage you to get a skin cancer screening the moment you detect something new on your skin that might seem a bit unusual, even if you don’t find it alarming.
Early detection of cancer is key to ensuring a cure rate of almost 100%. Contact us today to learn more about our dermatologist services.
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.
