Skin Cancer

Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. One in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime. Basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma are the most common types of non melanoma skin cancer. Melanoma, the most serious form of skin cancer, represents only three percent of skin cancers, but causes seventy five percent of deaths attributed to skin cancer. One in fifty five Americans will be diagnosed with melanoma in their lifetime.

Sun exposure is an important risk factor for skin cancer. A light complexion and/or history of blistering sunburns or indoor tanning are also significant risk factors.

We specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of skin cancer, utilizing the most advanced skin cancer removal techniques, including the advanced Mohs Micrographic Surgery technique. This precise skin cancer removal and microscopic analysis technique provides the highest cure rate and minimizes the removal of normal skin, enhancing the potential for the best cosmetic result.
