No Longer Does Skin Cancer Have To Be Disfiguring
Posted on 09/30/2015 on behalf of Dr. Kenrick Spence, M.D., F.A.C.S.
We understand just how nerve wrecking the diagnosis of skin cancer can be and how devastating the prognosis is when left untreated.
Before the combination of Mohs surgery, superficial radiotherapy, and reconstructive surgical interventions, the removal of cancers in sensitive areas such as the eyelids, nose, hands, face and neck meant being left with disfiguring scars. What makes this collaborative approach is that Mohs surgery spares as much healthy tissue as possible surrounding the cancerous area for functional and cosmetic purposes and when cosmetic closure by a board certified plastic surgeon is performed the probability of having disfiguring scars is remarkably low.
Skin cancer can occur in ANY skin type. Bob Marley died at age 36 due to an untreated melanoma mistaken to be an old soccer injury.
