If you are looking for skin cancer treatment, you undoubtedly want to be in the hands of a board-certified dermatologist that has a specific treatment that is known to be highly effective and easy for you. Our Dana Point dermatologist at Advanced Dermatology, Inc. may have the perfect solution for you: Mohs micrographic surgery. Mohs micrographic surgery is a surgical method used for specific types of skin cancer that has proven to be extremely successful for many, many patients. It is what is referred to an exacting procedure because our Dana Point dermatologist will perform both the surgical excision of the skin cancer tumor and also do a thorough microscopic examination in order to make sure that all of the cancerous cells have been removed during the surgery.
Mohs micrographic surgery is something that you should seriously consider discussing with our Dana Point dermatologist if you are in need of skin cancer treatment. It is currently the treatment that offers the highest potential of skin cancer cure, and therefore it should be taken quite seriously as a treatment option, even if you have had another treatment method used before. It is commonly used to remove large tumors, tumors that are in hard-to-treat places, tumors that are recurrent, and tumors that are in areas in which keeping the surrounding, healthy cells safe is especially important, such as around your eyes or nose. It is also commonly performed on basal cell and squamos cell carcinomas. Our Dana Point dermatologist can let you know if Mohs micrographic surgery is the right option for you after an initial consultation and examination of your individual condition.
