Skin Cancer is one of the fastest growing cancers in the US today. Skin cancer is a malignant growth of skin cells.
There are three major types of skin cancer: basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and malignant melanoma. Each, if caught early, can be removed without adverse affects. However, if left unchecked, these cancers can develop into serious skin conditions that can potentially spread throughout the body and be life threatening.
Regular skin exams, wearing protective clothing and sunscreen when out in the sun, and limiting sun exposure can help reduce the likelihood of developing skin cancer. Prevention is as important as treatment and our physicians can assist you in finding a skin care treatment regimen that is best for you and your lifestyle.
