Skin Cancer Treatments at Metro Dermatology

Our approach to treating skin cancer and growths includes a variety of surgical and non-surgical methods, each aimed at improving your health and aesthetic appearance.

The selection of a treatment plan depends on the type and location of the cancer or growth. While some skin cancers are visible on the surface, they may also extend deeper. Based on your individual case, treatments may involve local anesthesia and can include:

  • Excision: This procedure surgically removes the entire growth directly.
  • Curettage and Electrodessication: This method involves scraping away the cancerous tissue (curettage) followed by drying the area with electrical currents (electrodessication), effectively destroying any remaining cancer cells.
  • Topical Therapy: Certain creams or gels are applied directly to the skin to treat superficial forms of skin cancer, stimulating the body’s immune response or directly killing cancer cells.

These treatment options, along with the most beneficial strategy for your condition, will be thoroughly discussed during your consultation with our medical team. Our goal is to devise a personalized plan that best meets your needs, ensuring effective treatment and care.
