Skin cancer can develop in 1 out of 5 Americans at the age of 70. Many younger patients can also develop skin cancer, especially if it runs in the family. The number of cases may be large worldwide, but it is preventable and treatable with early detection. Consult with a doctor immediately if spots or marks on your skin seem suspicious.

The best age to start skin cancer screening is around your early 20s. You can perform a self-exam and consult with a doctor if you discover questionable spots or marks.
Look out for birthmarks, moles, lesions, lumps, or other skin growths that change in size, shape, or color. You will also need to observe if you experience pain or itchiness in the area.
Take note of all the information you gather from your self-exam and consult with our dermatologist as soon as possible.
Moles and melanoma are the most common symptoms of skin cancer. A mole has the potential to become cancerous if it is growing, changing in color, or developing an asymmetrical shape.
If not treated or removed early, moles can become malignant melanomas. There is still a 99% chance of a cure rate if melanoma is detected and treated at an early stage. Book your consultation for suspicious marks so that we can diagnose and treat skin cancer as early as possible.
Skin cancer types such as basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma can be treated with Mohs micrographic surgery. This is performed through careful excision of the skin until all the cancer cells are fully removed.
Mohs micrographic surgery is often accompanied by post-Mohs skin cancer reconstruction surgery. This procedure helps restore the appearance of the skin after Mohs surgery.
