Skin Cancer Detection and Treatment
The most common types of skin cancer are squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and basal cell carcinoma (BCC), also called non-melanoma skin cancer. While there are many different types of skin cancer, most are preventable and can be cured if caught early enough.
How can I tell if I have skin cancer?
A thorough examination at Dr. Jeff Alexander’s Dermatology Clinic is the best way to diagnose a possible occurrence of skin cancer, but you should be on the lookout for the following:
- Sores that do not heal within four weeks
- Spots on your body that look different than any other or that are new
- Unusual freckles or new or existing moles that change in color, size, or shape
In addition to an annual skin cancer screening, you should examine your body every three or four months, including your back and scalp. If you find anything unusual, please contact us to arrange a screening. If caught early enough, skin cancer is almost always treatable.
How can skin cancer be treated?
There are different treatments for the different types of skin cancer and Alexander Dermatology provides an extensive range of options. After your examination, we will discuss your treatment options with you to make sure you receive the best available care.
Spider veins are dilated small blood vessels that have a red or bluish color. While extremely common, spider veins are unnecessary and will remain until they are treated. A procedure called sclerotherapy is used to treat unwanted blood vessels and large varicose veins. A saline solution is injected with a fine needle directly into the blood vessel, causing it to swell, stick together, and the blood to clot. Over a period of weeks, the vessel fades, eventually becoming invisible. After several treatments, most patients can expect up to a 90% improvement.
