If a patient notices changes in a mole or an unusual growth on the skin, we encourage setting an appointment. Early detection of skin cancer is central to effective treatment and cures.
Mohs Fellowship-Trained Surgeons
Some of the best skin cancer surgeons in the nation have completed the Mohs fellowship program offered by American College of Mohs Surgery. Only a select few dermatologists are accepted into the 1-2 year intensive trainign program. Several of the dermatologists at Suncoast Skin Solutions are Fellowship-Trained Mohs Surgeons. Mohs surgery is one of the best ways to remove skin cancer and leave the surrounding tissue untouched. It is done with great precision and those surgeons with more training and experience are highly sought-after by patients.
Types of Skin Cancers Treated by Mohs Surgery
Mohs surgery is considered the best treatment option for all three types of the most prevalent skin cancers, including basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and some melanomas . Mohs surgery can be performed in one day and is a painless process. Same day testing can also be performed to confirm the absence of the cancer.
Remember, if detected early, melanoma and other skin cancers are curable surgically. This fact emphasizes the importance of routine self examination, as well
as the need for a skilled set of healthcare eyes to evaluate your skin.
