Each year, more than 1.2 million Americans are diagnosed with skin cancer.  While skin cancer is not always life threatening, if left untreated, it can progress causing significant destruction, functional compromise, deformity, and possible fatality in the case of malignant melanoma.  The incidence of skin cancer has increased rapidly now half of all new cancers in the United States are skin cancer.

There are three main forms of skin cancer - Basal Cell Carcinoma, Squamous Cell Carcinoma and Melanoma.  The most common type of skin cancer is Basal Cell Carcinoma which represents about 80% of all skin cancers. Squamous Cell Carcinoma is the next most frequent representing 16% and Malignant Melanoma, is the third most common representing about 4%.

Basal Cell and Squamous Cell cancers are generally curable with local surgical removal.  Melanoma may be curable when detected early, but can be fatal if allowed to spread.

Atlanta Dermatologic Surgery Consultants offers the most advanced treatment for skin cancer – Mohs'’ micrographic surgery.  This procedure offers the greatest potential for cure while minimizing the cosmetic impact on the patient.
