More than 2 million cases of skin cancer will be diagnosed in the United States this year. We specialize in the diagnosis, treatment, follow up and prevention of skin cancer.
Most Americans will have one of these skin cancers:
- Basal cell carcinoma
- Squamous cell carcinoma
Risk factors for the development of skin cancer include fair skin, family history of skin cancer, history of frequent sunburns and cumulative sun exposure. Fortunately, skin cancer is almost always curable of detected and treated early.
The American Academy of Dermatology web site is a valuable source of information about specific skin cancers and their treatments: http://www.aad.org/skin-conditions/dermatology-a-to-z/skin-cancer.
