Skin cancer screenings are a very important step in the early detection and treatment of any cancerous or precancerous lesions and moles on the skin.

The three most common skin cancers are caused by overexposure to the sun and appear as moles, scaly or crusty lesions, or shiny red or pearly bumps.

Mohs micrographic surgery is most commonly used to treat basal and squamous cell carcinomas and has a very high success rate of nearly 99%.

Laser treatments for actinic keratosis (AK) can remove or greatly reduce the size of the AK lesions as an important step in skin cancer prevention.

For patients diagnosed with certain nonaggressive skin cancers, topical and oral treatments can be very effective in reducing or removing the lesions.
