Skin Cancer Screening and Treatment
Skin cancer (basal/squamous cell carcinomas and malignant melanoma) frequently, but not always, appear on areas of the body exposed to the sun, such as the face, arms, legs, upper back, upper chest and scalp. Signs include areas that scab, bleed or will not heal; a persistent, slowly growing pink spot; bumps that appear to grow, thicken, become denser or tender; and moles that change color, shape or thickness.
Dr. Cohen is highly trained to spot and diagnose potential problems. It begins with a thorough examination to detect cancerous and precancerous growths in the early stages, simplifying treatment and improving outcomes.
When it comes to treatment, you are in the very best of hands. The medical staff at Hendersonville Dermatology is trained and experienced in a wide variety of treatment protocols including surgical excision, electrodessication and curettage, topical chemotherapy and cryosurgery. For more aggressive tumors, Dr. Cohen teams with area oncology and surgery specialists to craft the best possible plan for the most effective outcome.
