Skin Cancer Treatment in Salt Lake City and South Jordan

Types of Skin Cancer

Skin cancer is a serious health concern that affects millions of people worldwide. There are several types of skin cancer, including:

  • Basal Cell Carcinoma – Basal cell carcinoma is the most prevalent form of skin cancer, and a majority of people will experience at least one during their lifetime. The growths of basal cell carcinoma are recognizable as they appear as pearly, translucent lumps that can crust, bleed, or ulcerate. While this type of skin cancer is not typically deadly, it can be harmful to the affected tissue and may lead to disfigurement. Treatment options such as chemical therapy, cryosurgery using liquid nitrogen, and excision can be implemented.
  • Squamous Cell Carcinoma – Squamous cell carcinomas share similarities in appearance with basal cell carcinomas, but they tend to be more aggressive. Although uncommon, this type of skin cancer can spread internally. Therefore, patients who have had squamous cell carcinomas are usually closely monitored after treatment to ensure that there is no sign of persistence or recurrence. Excision is usually the preferred treatment option for squamous cell carcinomas.
  • Malignant Melanoma – Malignant melanoma is a type of skin cancer that has the potential to be life-threatening. It can develop from an existing mole or from normal skin. Symptoms include pigmented lesions that are asymmetrical in shape, have irregular edges, are multicolored, and have unusual thickening or dramatic growth. Early detection is crucial in treating melanoma, as it almost 100% curable. Keep an eye on any moles or lesions, and schedule regular skin cancer screenings with a dermatologist.

How Is Skin Cancer Treated?

Skin cancer treatment depends on the type, size, location, and extent of cancer. In some cases, simple excision of the cancerous tissue is sufficient, while in others, more advanced skin cancer surgery techniques may be necessary. Treatment options include topical chemical therapy, cryosurgery with liquid nitrogen, excision, Mohs surgery, radiation therapy, and immunotherapy. Treatment success rates are highest when skin cancer is detected early.
