SKIN CANCER OVERVIEW

Learning that you have skin cancer causes anxiety because cancer is such a frightening diagnosis. But don’t be alarmed if you have had a positive biopsy for skin cancer or suspect that you may have skin cancer! Skin cancers are almost always easy to treat, and correct treatment usually leaves minimal scarring.

Quick facts about skin cancer treatment:

  • With the rare exception of melanoma, skin cancers are usually slow growing and do not spread to other parts of the body.
  • Dr. Alexander can surgically remove cancerous and other skin lesions using specialized techniques to preserve your health and your appearance.
  • Treatment usually requires only minor surgery.
  • Removing a skin cancer or performing reconstruction may require more than one procedure to achieve the best results.

UNDERSTANDING THE PROCEDURE

At Alexander Cosmetic Surgery, taking care of skin cancers is one the procedures we perform on a daily basis.

Skin cancers usually develop on areas of the body that have been exposed to the sun. They often present as an irritated area that is flaky, red, ulcerated, or doesn’t seem to heal. It can be difficult to tell if a patient has a skin cancer just with the naked eye or magnification because pre-cancerous lesions and even benign growths can imitate cancers. The only way to tell for sure is to remove the growth and have it examined by a trained pathologist.

Most skin cancer procedures are very quick and simple and can usually be done with a local anesthetic in just a few minutes.
