What is skin cancer?
Skin cancer is an abnormality of skin cells. Skin cancer is often detected during skin cancer screenings or when patients come into the practice with an unusual or changing mole or skin tag. Skin cancer may appear as a non-healing sore. Biopsies are taken and sent to a laboratory to determine if skin cancer cells are present to provide an accurate diagnosis.
What treatment is available for skin cancer?
There are several types of treatment for skin cancer, but our team recommends Mohs micrographic surgery.
