Skin Cancer Diagnosis and Treatment
Skin cancers are rather common tumors that increase in frequency as our life span increases and as we receive more sun exposure.
There are several types of skin cancers including:
- Basal Cell Carcinoma
- Squamous Cell Carcinoma
At Hilton Head Dermatology and Skin Cancer Center, we offer a variety of surgical treatment modalities to best treat your specific diagnosis including:
- Excisional Surgery
- Laser Surgery
- Mohs Micrographic Surgery
Mohs Micrographic Skin Cancer Surgery
This technique is employed for difficult skin cancers to ensure the greatest probability of cure while preserving the normal tissue. This method differs from all other methods of treating skin cancer in that a complete microscopic examination of all removed tissue is performed through a detailed technique.
Cosmetic/Plastic Surgery Skin Repairs
After skin cancers are successfully removed, it may be necessary to reconstruct the defect. We use great care in planning and executing reparative techniques for our patients. We also perform a great many scar revisions, attempting to recreate a more natural appearance.
The removal of nevi (moles), warts, age spots, cysts and other lesions can be accomplished through a variety of modalities.
