Our team of dermatologic surgeons, nurses, and team are experienced to diagnose, treat and surgically remove any tumors, pre-cancerous skin lesions, dangerous or malignant moles, as well as any other unwanted or potentially worrisome growths on the skin. Various types of skin cancer can evolve or develop on different regions of the body and skin. Prior to the development of skin cancer, often times a malignant pre-cancerous lesion may be present. This is why seeing a board-certified dermatologist and skin can surgeon regularly can be beneficial in prevention and early detection.

If you notice your skin is prone to new growths, some of which change in size or shape, are elevated or raised, you should consider consulting with a dermatologist at LA Laser Center. We offer various techniques and removal recommendations depending on the type of cancer or lesion present, size, location and nature of the tumor or malignancy. For instance, for skin cancers or tumors present on the face, nose, forehead or cheeks, we would probably select the Mohs micrographic surgery technique for removal. If the tumor is present somewhere on the body and the risk for scarring is minimal, a different removal method may be selected. Call us for your consultation today.
