Skin Cancer Patient, Prevention and Treatment
Skin cancer is the most common cancer in humans. Early detection and treatment are key to keeping your skin healthy in the long term.
Melanoma is the most dangerous form of skin cancer. Dr. Sherber looks for subtle clues in patients’ family history and in their skin to ensure that trouble spots are treated efficiently and effectively.
- Basal Cell Cancer is now the most common cancer in humans. These skin cancers may appear benign, and Dr. Sherber uses a trained eye to diagnose them early.
- Squamous Cell Cancer is generally seen in areas of chronic sun exposure and can often be mistaken for benign growths, and Dr. Sherber uses a trained eye to diagnose them early.
- In areas of skin that have accumulated sun exposure over the years, red rough areas with a sandpaper-y texture called actinic keratoses can develop. If untreated, these Pre-cancers can develop into Squamous cell cancer.
