Skin Cancer Treatment
Every year, more than 500,000 new cases of skin cancer are reported in the United States. It is the most frequently diagnosed form of cancer, and the numbers are increasing. Skin cancers take many different forms, but generally they appear as growths and discoloration on the skin, most often the skin of the face, head, and neck.
Our Rochester, Buffalo, and Syracuse area plastic surgeon team have the medical training necessary to properly diagnose the various kinds of skin cancer growths, and can surgically remove the growth while maintaining a high level of function and a pleasing appearance, particularly important when the cancer is on the face or another highly visible spot. Most removals are performed in the physician’s office with local anesthetic.
