Medical Diagnosis for Skin Concerns & Conditions
Various types of skin growths exist and some can be problematic or concerning both aesthetically as well as medically. Cysts, warts, skin tags, moles, angiomas, and other growths of the skin can be treated and removed at Skin & Cancer Institute. For more troubling or recurring growths, several treatments may be necessary. While surgical excision is a popular method for removal, cryotherapy, liquid nitrogen and electrodesiccation and curettage are also options utilized. For example, electrodesiccation is an electric current most often applied to treat brown spots, skin tags and sebaceous hyperplasia.

The Dangers of Cancerous Skin Tumors & How We Remove Them
Pre-cancerous skin lesions, the precursor to an actual tumor, are something that should be routinely examined if not removed by your dermatologist. Annual examinations are highly recommended. If you are an individual with excess sun exposure or are prone to skin growth, medical examinations are essential and should be done more routinely.
Several types of skin cancer exist. The primary types include basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma. Melanoma is a more worrisome form that an individual should be wary of. Timely treatment and removal is made possible with various treatment methods including Mohs surgery, electrodesiccation and removal and surgical excision. Mohs micrographic surgery is most often performed in cases where the tumor is present on the face or a highly visible area of the body. This technique is the most effective and essentially saves as much of the patient’s own natural skin tissue as possible.
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a pre-cancerous skin lesion or actual skin cancer, make an appointment to be seen by one of our skin cancer experts and surgeons.
