Basal cell carcinoma is the most common form of skin cancer, typically appearing on sun-exposed areas of the skin such as the face, neck, and hands. As a dermatologist at Dermatology Solutions, I have extensive experience in diagnosing and treating basal cell carcinoma. This type of cancer grows slowly and rarely spreads to other parts of the body, but early detection and treatment are crucial to prevent further damage. During your consultation, I will carefully evaluate suspicious skin lesions and recommend a biopsy if necessary. Treatment options for basal cell carcinoma may include surgical excision, Mohs micrographic surgery, cryosurgery, topical medications, or photodynamic therapy. I will work closely with you to develop an individualized treatment plan that focuses on effectively removing the cancer while preserving the health and appearance of your skin.
Squamous cell carcinoma is another common type of skin cancer that typically develops on areas exposed to the sun, such as the face, ears, lips, and hands. As a skilled dermatologist, I understand the importance of early diagnosis and treatment for squamous cell carcinoma. During your consultation at Dermatology Solutions, I will carefully examine any suspicious lesions and perform a biopsy if needed to confirm the diagnosis. Treatment options for squamous cell carcinoma may include surgical excision, Mohs micrographic surgery, cryosurgery, radiation therapy, topical medications, or photodynamic therapy. I will develop a personalized treatment plan based on the specific characteristics of your cancer and your individual needs. With early intervention, we can successfully treat squamous cell carcinoma and help you maintain the health and integrity of your skin.
Melanoma is the most aggressive and potentially life-threatening form of skin cancer. It usually develops in moles or appears as new dark spots on the skin. As a dermatologist specializing in skin cancer detection and treatment, I emphasize the importance of regular skin checks to detect melanoma early.
If you notice any concerning changes in moles or the appearance of new suspicious lesions, it is crucial to schedule a consultation at Dermatology Solutions. Using advanced diagnostic techniques, including dermoscopy and biopsy, I can accurately diagnose melanoma and determine the appropriate treatment approach. Treatment options for melanoma may include surgical excision, sentinel lymph node biopsy, immunotherapy, targeted therapy, or radiation therapy. I will guide you through the entire process, providing expert care and support to ensure the best possible outcome.
Benign bothersome nodules are non-cancerous growths that can develop on the skin. While they are typically harmless, they can cause discomfort, affect your appearance, or interfere with daily activities. At Dermatology Solutions, I offer effective treatments for removing and managing these bothersome nodules. During your consultation, I will evaluate the characteristics of the nodule and recommend the most suitable treatment option. Depending on the type and location of the nodule, treatments may include surgical excision, cryosurgery, laser therapy, or corticosteroid injections. I will ensure that your treatment is performed safely and with minimal scarring, helping you regain comfort and confidence.
Skin tags are small, benign growths that commonly appear in areas where the skin rubs against itself, such as the neck, underarms, and groin. While skin tags are harmless, they can be bothersome or affect your self-esteem. As your dermatologist at Dermatology Solutions, I offer safe and effective treatments to remove skin tags. Depending on the size, location, and number of skin tags, treatment options may include simple snipping, cryosurgery, electrocautery, or ligation. During your consultation, I will assess your skin tags and recommend the most appropriate approach to remove them, ensuring minimal scarring and a quick recovery.
Moles are common skin growths composed of pigment-producing cells. While most moles are harmless, certain changes in their appearance, such as asymmetry, irregular borders, color variations, or size enlargement, may indicate the presence of skin cancer. At Dermatology Solutions, I specialize in the evaluation and management of moles. During your consultation, I will conduct a thorough examination of your moles and identify any suspicious characteristics. If necessary, I will perform a biopsy to determine if the mole is cancerous or benign. For benign moles that are causing cosmetic concerns, I offer mole removal procedures that prioritize your comfort and aesthetic outcome. If skin cancer is detected, I will develop an appropriate treatment plan, which may include surgical excision or other targeted therapies, to ensure optimal results and long-term skin health.
Earlobe repair is a common procedure performed to address various concerns, including split or elongated earlobes caused by trauma, accidents, or earlobe stretching. As a skilled dermatologist at Dermatology Solutions, I offer earlobe repair procedures to restore the natural appearance and integrity of your earlobes. The procedure involves precise surgical techniques to close the split or elongated earlobe and achieve a seamless result. Whether you seek earlobe repair for cosmetic reasons or to improve the functionality of your earlobes, I will provide personalized care and guidance throughout the entire process.
