Board Certified Dermatologists Drs. Roger I. Ceilley, Andrew K. Bean & Joshua B. Wilson at DERMATOLOGY, PC state that skin cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed today. There are three main forms of skin cancer, all related to the sun, and the disease can also run in families. The doctors evaluate atypical moles & cysts for patients on a yearly basis -- more often for those at high-risk. The most important aspect of skin cancer treatment is prevention and early detection, since most cancers are completely curable if caught early and are treated.
As Diplomats of the American College of Mohs Micrographic Surgery, Drs. Ceilley, Bean & Wilson use Mohs as an office-based surgical procedure for the optimal removal of certain types of skin cancers. Mohs enables the doctors to immediately examine the cancer after its removal to make sure all cancer margins are clear, as well as a smaller margin to be obtained in some cases. A smaller scar is the result and a higher cure rate possible. New topical creams can also now be used effectively to treat some skin cancers.
