Dr. Peyman Ghasri is a top dermatologist and a specialist in Mohs surgery. This procedure uses a special technique to spare as much healthy tissue as possible while still removing the entire tumor. It can be especially beneficial when treating cancers on sensitive tissues, such as those of the face, hands, feet and genitalia. Other surgical options are also available, including electrodessication and curettage, surgical excision, cryosurgery and laser surgery. Nonsurgical skin cancer treatment options may be needed for certain types of cancers and for specific cases, including photodynamic therapy, radiation therapy and topical chemotherapy.

Skin cancer symptoms can include any abnormality or area of change on the skin. It could appear as a red or irritated sore, a mole that looks different from other moles, a mole or bump that is changing, a dry or patchy area that does not heal or a pearly or red bump. Skin abnormalities should be monitored and further evaluated as needed. Monthly self-checks combined with annual skin exams can help catch skin cancer at its earliest stages when it is most treatable.
