Treatments for Skin Cancer
Skin cancer is by far the most common type of cancer, with millions diagnosed with this disease every year in the U.S. Most types of skin cancer can be effectively treated and pose a low risk for spreading or death if detected and treated early. However, all types of skin cancer should be taken seriously. Our dermatology team at LM Medical NYC offers skin checks, mole removal and treatments for skin cancer at our clinic in Manhattan.
Skin cancer is very prevalent and affects millions of new patients each year. The key to effective treatment for skin cancer is early detection. Most skin cancers begin with lesions on the skin that are visible. Performing home skin checks and body checks with a dermatologist can ensure you catch any skin abnormalities early. Most skin cancers can be treated effectively with removal of the lesion before it is allowed to spread to other areas of the body. Our dermatology team can offer preventive care for skin cancer and treatment for detected lesions or tumors.
Types of Skin Cancer
The three main types of skin cancer include basal cell carcinoma (BCC), squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and melanoma. Each type affects a different area of the skin. While BCC and SCC are the most common, melanoma is the most dangerous and has the highest risk of spreading cancer to other areas of the body.
