Skin Cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed today. There are three main forms of skin cancer: basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and malignant melanoma. All three types are related to the sun, and the disease can run in families.
We offer our patients a full skin cancer screening on a yearly basis, or more often for those at high risk. We see many, many patients with skin cancers. The most important aspect of skin cancer treatment is prevention and early detection since most cancers are completely curable if caught early and treated. Prevention requires sun avoidance, sunscreen or sunblock on a routine basis. We have a wonderful selection of the best sunscreens and sunblocks available at our office for every skin type including acne and rosacea prone, sensitive skin and eczema.
Early detection requires good self-examination of the skin as well as yearly or more frequent examinations by a dermatologist. We also treat pre-cancers before they become skin cancers with Photodynamic Therapy (PDT). We look forward to helping you keep your skin healthy and beautiful.
