What is Skin Cancer?

Skin cancer is one of the more common issues that we assess and treat at drs skin care. It is a very important area of patient health, and something that we encounter daily during patient appointments. Our experience in this area is valuable to a patient in recognizing potential concerns promptly, so that treatment may be provided at the earliest stages. This is how to obtain the most favorable outcome. No two people are alike, and there are many types of skin cancer, as well as many forms in which it can present.

What to expect

At drs skincare, we perform biopsies on areas that are susceptible to skin cancer to obtain an accurate diagnosis. Many skin growths that are cancerous can be completely removed by our doctor with no further treatment required. We recommend regular skin checks by our professionals to stay on top of any changes that may occur, and maybe more frequently after a skin cancer occurrence. For more complex skin cancer surgeries, we offer referral to a trusted plastic surgery associate, to provide the patient with the most effective continuance of care.
