SKIN CANCER

Basal Cell Carcinoma On The Neck

Skin cancer is the most common of all cancers in the USA. Basal cell cancer is the most common of all skin cancers. Other less common but dangerous skin cancers include squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma.

All types of skin cancers can occur anywhere on the body and in anyone, but they are more common in sun-exposed areas in lighter skin people.

For basal cell and squamous cell cancers, one often notes a changing bump, lesion or pimple. Sometimes the spot can bleed or itch.

A melanoma often appears like a mole that is changing. When parts of the "ABCD's" are off, with "A" Asymmetry, "B" being "Border", "C" being color and "D" being diameter or at least the size of a pencil eraser, then a mole is often suspicious

Testing is generally performed under local anesthetic and consists of a biopsy; the skin specimen is then sent to a laboratory for evaluation.

Fortunately if caught early, most skin cancers can be treated. Generally the treatment is surgical and is most often performed as an outpatient in the office; there is usually no need for hospitalization.

If you are concerned about a growth or a possible skin cancer, just call our office today at (212) 557-2600 or e-mail us anytime and set up a Consultation for evaluation and possible treatment of your growth or skin cancer
