Skin Cancer Treatment
Skin cancer is an all-too-common development of abnormal skin cells that proliferate mostly in areas exposed to the sun. However, skin cancer can appear anywhere on the body. Your risk of contracting skin cancer increases with routine exposure to UV sunlight. Routine skin cancer screenings can catch its development early and increase your chances of successful treatment. Spectrum Dermatology of Atlanta offers skin cancer screenings and treatment in the Atlanta Metro and surrounding communities.
Skin cancer affects people of all skin types and tones, although certain types seem to prefer darker skin. These cancers begin in the epidermis, or top layer of skin, which consists of three types of cells. The type of cell where your skin cancer begins determines the type of cancer and its treatment. Treatment includes topical chemotherapy, surgical removal, and Image-Guided Superficial Radiotherapy (IG-SRT). Regular screenings for skin cancer can catch it early in development when it is more easily defeated.
