Skin Cancer Checks

Skin Cancer Checks

Non-melanoma skin cancers such as basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas are very common. Due to sun exposure, these growths typically do not have the dark and irregular appearance of melanoma. Their appearance, especially early on, can be subtle, slightly pink, shiny or rough. They also are rarely at risk for metastasis, the spreading of cancer elsewhere in the body. Though these lesions are not life threatening, if they occur on the face, they can cause functional impairment and deformity.

Our doctors are trained to identify these types of skin cancer at the earliest stages and to treat in a fashion to limit scarring. A new or changing growth, especially if it bleeds, deserves evaluation. After an initial biopsy, the doctors personally contact patients to inform them of the results and whether further treatment may be recommended.
