Have you recently been diagnosed with melanoma or would like to undergo a melanoma skin check?
Melanoma is a deadly skin cancer that, when caught early, can have a high cure rate. Cases of melanoma are on the rise, even as there’s a growing understanding among people that skin protection is incredibly important. This skin cancer – which is typically prompted by excess sun damage – happens when there’s excess growth of melanocytes (cells that produce skin color).
Common symptoms of melanoma include moles that have unusual borders, discolorations, unusual growth, and more. That’s why we recommend people undergo yearly skin checks with a dermatology provider to keep track of moles and skin discolorations. That way, the odds of catching melanoma early increase, thus improving your odds of beating this skin cancer.
Twin Ports Dermatology offers both yearly skin checks and treatments for melanoma. We provide innovative testing for those patients who may be affected by melanoma or are suspicious they may have this skin cancer.
What Treatment Options Are Available for Melanoma?
There are different approaches that can be taken to diagnose and treat melanoma, including:
- Dermoscopy exam
- Wide Excisions
- Genomic testing to identify recurrence risk
Our dermatology providers will help you pick the right melanoma solution for your specific needs.
