What Is Skin Cancer?
Though the mortality rate of skin cancer is relatively low, the condition should still be taken seriously. There are three main types of skin cancer: basal-cell, squamous-cell, and melanoma. In order to provide the best skin cancer treatment, having a thorough knowledge of the specific cancer type is essential. By knowing the specific progression rate and severity of the disease, you can be provided with the best treatment course possible. If you are due for a skin cancer screening, we encourage you to contact our sister practice, Helena Dermatology.
Why Is Cancer Screening Important?
Cancer screening is essential for finding and treating several types of cancer early, before they cause symptoms. Early detection of skin cancer is important because when abnormal tissue or cancer is found quickly, it may be easier to treat down the line. By the time symptoms appear, the cancer may have begun to spread and be harder to address.
Cancer Screening at Helena Dermatology
Our sister practice, Helena Dermatology, provides skin cancer screening and surgery to those in need. The screening procedure typically involves a thorough examination of the skin. If an abnormal mole or other growth is discovered, you may be asked to make a follow-up appointment for additional testing such a biopsy or excision.
