Skin Cancer Surgery

Skin Cancer | Skin & Laser Surgery Center of New EnglandWhat are the 3 types of Skin Cancer?

The incidence of skin cancer has risen in past few years. We treat all types of skin cancers including the following:

  • Basal Cell Carcinoma
  • Squamous Cell Carcinoma
  • Malignant Melanoma

Some skin cancers can be treated non-surgically but most require surgery. We perform skin cancer surgeries almost every day, weather it is treating a small pre-cancerous spot or a large skin cancer on the face requiring a skin flap or graft. All skin surgeries are performed at our facility under local anesthesia.

Basal: Basal cell skin cancer is the most common form and typically develops on sun-exposed areas on fair skin. These cancers tend to grow slow and is very rare for it to spread to other parts of the body.

Squamous Cell Carcinoma: Squamous cell carcinoma occurs in the squamous cells of the skin. This often appear on sun exposed areas of the body such as the face, neck, ears, lips, and back of hands. About 2 out of 10 skin cancer cases fall into this type and are more common in people with dark skin.

Malignant Melanoma: Melanoma is the most aggressive type of skin cancer, and the most likely to spread to other parts of the body. These cancers develop from melanocytes, or the pigment-making cells of the skin.
