Surgical and Non-Surgical Skin Cancer Treatments
We pride ourselves at Dermatology PA in offering multiple treatment modalities for skin cancer. Most offices do not offer this and rely mostly on surgical treatment. We offer simple curettage removals for most Basal Cell and Squamous Cell carcinomas. This is an inexpensive and time honored treatment modality. In cosmetically sensitive areas we often suggest Aldara cream as a non-surgical topical chemotherapy option. This treatment is not often offered and we feel is completely underutilized in the dermatologic community. We offer referral to the best Mohs surgeons in town whom we have hand picked for their expertise. Mohs surgery is reserved for certain difficult skin cancer removals. Melanoma removal is always surgical and requires a certain skill level that may involve hospital work and we have the best surgeon in town do this work for our patients.
