If you are experiencing skin lesions, moles that have changed color, symmetry, or size, you should receive a skin cancer screening.

By developing a melanoma, you have one of the most aggressive types of cancer and need to seek out an experienced dermatologist to strategize a plan.

Squamous cell carcinoma, also known as SCC, is a very treatable form of skin cancer when it is detected in the early stages of cancer development.

Basal cell carcinomas (BCC) grow deep within the skin, but their large presence does not impact the lymph nodes or any other parts of your body.

Cryosurgery (or freezing cells for removal) uses liquid nitrogen to freeze unwanted precancer or cancer cells to dehydrate them so they will fall off.

Electrodesiccation and curettage are removal techniques available to patients with skin growths (the electrical current dehydrates the lesion).

Under the supervision of our board-certified dermatologists and physician assistants, you may qualify for topical cancer treatments for SCC or BCC.

Mohs micrographic surgery by Dr. Michael Pelster is the treatment of choice for basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and high-risk tumors.
