Skin Cancer

Skin cancer is the most common malignancy in human beings. The three most common types of skin cancer, in decreasing order, are basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma. Skin cancer usually arises from sun-exposed regions of the body, including the face, neck, ear lobes, and extremities; however, skin cancer can occur anywhere on the body.

Risk factors for skin cancer include exposure to ultraviolet light (UVB), the most common source is the sun, radiation exposure, chronic chemical exposure, burns,  immunosuppression and genetic predisposition.

 When diagnosed early, skin cancer can be cured with relatively simple treatment. We offered cryogenic ablation, laser ablation, and surgical excision. We also performed Mohs Surgery.
Mohs Surgery is special technique of excising skin cancer. Once excised, the specimen is immediately examined under the microscope, which allows the surgeon to determine whether further excision is required. Mohs surgery enable the surgeon to safely remove all the cancer while sparing normal tissue. This technique minimizes the defect in cosmetically sensitive area.
