Skin Cancer Surgery

According to the American Academy of Dermatology, the most common cancer in the world is skin cancer. There is more than one type of skin cancer, however, some of which are more dangerous or more easily treated than others.

Signs and symptoms of skin cancer

Skin cancer most commonly develops on areas of the skin which are most exposed to the sun, however it can also form on areas that rarely see the light of day. Cancer may present itself as a rash, a sore, a scaly patch of skin, a scar with a waxy texture, a growth beneath the skin or even a pimple that doesn’t seem to go away. It is also common for skin cancer to have an appearance similar to a mole or to start within a mole. If you notice any changes in your skin it’s important to schedule an appointment with your dermatologist so they can diagnose your skin changes and determine the cause of it.

Treatment Options

Skin cancer often occurs in areas of the skin that have been damaged by the sun, radiation or chemical exposure, although they may occur anywhere on the body – including in the mouth. Fortunately, there are many highly effective treatments for skin cancer, including surgical removal of the cancer, topical treatment, cryosurgery, immunotherapy and photodynamic therapy.
