What is Skin Cancer?

Skin cancer refers to the abnormal, uncontrolled growth of skin cells. One in five people will develop skin cancer in their lifetime, according to the American Academy of Dermatology. Risk factors include pale skin, family history of melanoma, being over 40 years old, and regular sun exposure. Fortunately, skin cancer is almost always curable if detected and treated early.

The most common skin cancers are:

  • Basal cell carcinoma

    – 80-85% of all skin cancers. Basal cell carcinoma affects cells in the lowest layer of the epidermis.

  • Squamous cell carcinoma

    – 10% of all skin cancers. Squamous cell carcinoma affects cells in the middle layer of the epidermis.

  • Melanoma

    – 5% of all skin cancers. Melanoma is a rare but very dangerous type of skin cancer. It is the leading cause of death from skin disease.

Skin cancers vary in shape, color, size and texture, so any new, changed or otherwise suspicious growths or rashes should be examined immediately by a physician. Early intervention is essential to preventing the cancer from spreading.

Patient Testimonial

Amazing experience! From the moment I arrived and was greeted by a “safety station” and welcoming staff to the comforting laughter during a slightly uncomfortable procedure, the team at C & B amazes me. The difference from one docs office to the next is the way in which you are regarded before during and after treatment. Thank you for being authentic and taking such good care of me through the years!”
