Skin Cancer Prevention, Diagnosis, and Treatment
Over the past 30 years, more people have had skin cancer than all other types of cancers combined. Most types of skin cancer can be treated relatively easily so a skin cancer diagnosis is far from a death sentence. Of course, as with any type of cancer, the earlier skin cancer is detected and treated the better. Expert skin cancer screenings are available from doctors who specialize in dermatology in Reno NV. Dr. Gross can check you for signs of carcinomas, melanomas, and pre-cancerous lesions at his treatment centers. If cancer is found, he can provide surgical treatment. This may include Mohs surgery, which is a very effective and minimally invasive treatment for carcinomas.
Of course, it would be better never to develop skin cancer in the first place. Dr. Gross can provide advice for skin cancer prevention as well as guidance for performing the at-home skin cancer self-exams that will help with early detection of any suspicious moles, growths, or bumps.
