Medical Diagnosis for Skin Concerns & Conditions

Cysts, warts, skin tags, moles, angiomas, and other growths of the skin can be treated and removed at Skin & Cancer Institute.

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 growths, 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, electrodessication 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 most effective and essentially saves as much of the patient’s own natural skin tissue as possible.
