The best treatment is early detection—so don't delay in getting questionable spots checked by a professional. The following is our simple, effective process for skin cancer detection and treatment.
- If you have a spot of concern, Dr Monticciolo will examine it clinically as well as other spots that are hard to find.
- If a potential risk is discovered, a biopsy is performed.
- The biopsy is sent to a pathologist for further microscopic evaluation to determine if the spot is benign. If needed, the treatment is determined and our patients are advised of the best way to prevent further change and/or spread of the suspicious area.
