Let’s face it. Cancer is a scary word. And you may not realize it, but skin cancer is the most common form of cancer.
Fortunately, if caught early, it is highly treatable and rarely fatal. At Lake Loveland Dermatology, our priority is your health. Our dermatologists are experts in diagnosing skin cancer and identifying the best methods of treatment. Our onsite lab allows us to get biopsy results quickly, so if treatment is needed, it can begin right away.
Our team of professionals is skilled in the following treatment areas:
- Electrodessication and curettage
- Radiation therapy
- Topical agents
- Photodynamic therapy
- Excisional surgery
- Mohs microscopically controlled surgery (for more challenging skin cancers)
Most skin lesions are not cancerous, but our dermatologists are most qualified to determine if a spot needs further investigation.
We urge you to take an active role in protecting your skin health by scheduling an appointment annually for a full-body skin examination. We also encourage you to practice prevention and perform monthly self-exams so you can be aware of changes if and when they happen.
Don’t put it off! Contact us today at (970) 667-3116 to schedule your skin cancer examination.
