Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer, but you don’t tend to hear as much about skin cancer as about other more high-profile cancers. Why? Perhaps it’s because skin cancer treatment in Fallon NV has such a high success rate. The key to beating skin cancer is early detection and treatment. This makes it very important to develop a relationship with a skilled dermatologist like Dr Gross who you can trust to monitor your skin for any signs of cancer and quickly and effectively treat any carcinomas or melanomas that may be found.
Signs of Skin Cancer
When it comes to detecting skin cancer, it is better to be safe than sorry. In other words, it is better to have your dermatologist investigate any and every suspicious skin change, even if none of them turn out to be cancerous, rather than let one single cancerous spot or mole slip by undetected. Here are some of the key signs of skin cancer to watch out for:
- Dome-shaped pearly bumps
- Red, scaly skin
- Tender red or skin-colored nodules
- Asymmetrical moles
- Unusual colors
- Spots larger than the tip of a pencil eraser
- Bleeding, itching, or crusting
- Sores that don’t heal normally
- Changes in any of the above
If any of these issues are confirmed as skin cancer, Dr Gross can then provide skin cancer treatment in Fallon NV appropriate for the type and development of the cancer in question.
Options for Skin Cancer Treatment in Fallon NV
The two most common types of skin cancer, basal and squamous cell carcinoma, are very easy to treat. Using Mohs surgery, a skilled dermatologic surgeon like Dr Gross can remove these skin cancers with a 98 percent success rate. This skin cancer treatment in Fallon NV involves removing the cancerous cells layer by layer, checking the edges of the tissue each time for evidence of cancer. The surgery continues until all cancerous cells are removed. However, in some cases the cancer may be so advanced it is in danger of spreading beyond the skin. In this case, more invasive surgery along with treatments like chemotherapy or immunotherapy may be necessary.
