SKIN CANCER SCREENINGS

Our skilled dermatologists will examine your skin for suspicious moles or lesions, and take samples, if necessary, to be checked by a pathologist. If we detect the three forms of skin cancer – Basal Cell, Squamous Cell or Melanoma – the dangerous cells can be removed.

EXCISIONS

The surgical removal of benign or malignant growths, such as moles, lesions, and tumors, from your skin. Usually performed using local anesthesia, which ensures that you feel no pain during the procedure.

MOHS SURGERY

A precise surgical technique used to treat skin cancer, where thin layers of cancer-containing skin are removed and examined until only cancer-free tissue remains, while doing minimal damage to surrounding healthy tissue. This is usually done on an outpatient basis using a local anesthetic.


We focus on patient care by providing our patients with timely access to skin cancer screening, diagnosis, and treatment with a personal touch. We think you’ll notice the difference the moment you walk in.

Skin cancer is a very serious condition that affects millions of Americans each and every year. It can develop in men and women of all ages, and is the most common form of cancer in the United States. Studies show that one in five Americans will develop skin cancer during their lifetime.

At Blue Valley Dermatology, our skilled dermatologists have wide range of options for treating skin cancers, including surgical removal of the tissue. Skin cancer surgery is usually done right in our office and typically takes only a few minutes.

When one of our dermatologists detects cells that may be cancerous in your skin, he or she will conduct a thorough examination, typically involving a biopsy, to make an accurate diagnosis. Then he or she will determine if surgery is right for you, and what kind of surgery is ideal for your case.
