May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month
Skin cancer is one of the most common yet one of the most curable types of cancer. Typically, skin cancer occurs on sun exposed areas such as the face, neck, arms and hands. Basal cell carcinoma is the most common cancer followed by squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma. Each of these can present in different ways.
If you have a suspicious mole or skin lesion, call to schedule an appointment with Dr. Sandel. He may perform a biopsy if there is a concern for cancer. If the lesion needs to be removed, you can trust that Dr. Sandel will remove and repair the area with the utmost care and expertise to ensure the least amount of scarring.
Did you know that you can request to have a skin cancer repaired by Dr. Sandel after a Mohs procedure? Just ask your dermatologist!
